It’s Not An Easy Road



It’s Not An Easy Road

Words and Music by John W. Peterson

It’s not an easy road we are trav’ling to Heaven,
For many are the thorns on the way;
It’s not an easy road but the Savior is with us,
His presence gives us joy ev’ry day.

No, no, it’s not an easy road,
No, no, it’s not an easy road.
But Jesus walks with me and brightens my journey,
And lightens ev’ry heavy load.

It’s not an easy road, there are trials and troubles,
And many are the dangers we meet;
But Jesus guards and keeps so that nothing can harm us,
And smooth the rugged path for our feet.

No, no, it’s not an easy road,
No, no, it’s not an easy road.
But Jesus walks with me and brightens my journey,
And lightens ev’ry heavy load.

Tho’ I am often footsore and weary from travel,
Tho’ I am often bowed down with care;
A better day is coming when Home in the glory,
We’ll rest in perfect peace over there.

No, no, it’s not an easy road,
No, no, it’s not an easy road.
But Jesus walks with me and brightens my journey,
And lightens ev’ry heavy load.

    The LORD laid this song on my heart since yesterday (27/07/2011) evening and I kept singing it. I woke by midnight looking for the lyrics but could not find it. I remembered that I could easily get it on the internet and I got it on your website. Thanks a trillion and keep being blessed.

    I would very much like to have the story behind the song We’ll talk it over in the bye and bye. I heard many years ago that this was an american pastor’s heartbreaking story, after his wife was killed in an accident. Does anyone out there know is this is the story.
