The Emmaus Road

Some poor stranger strolled beside them
   On their long and lonely walk.
Kind and wise, He gently plied them,
   Why such sadness in their talk?
How their hearts within were burning
   When His wondrous Word He taught!
Precious lessons they were learning,
   Though they recognized Him not.

So when worries of desertion
   Your emotions overtake,
And you question God’s assertion
   That He never will forsake,
Let your soul embrace the tidings
   Ringing from this tale so true:
Even when the Lord is hiding,
   He is still right there with you!
