The Service of Song – “Our Roads Lead Home”

The Gift of Song

For our upcoming conference, the MCCW has been given an incredible gift. Our music liturgist, Julie Carrick, has composed a song entitled “Our Roads Lead Home…” to help us in our worship and celebration as we gather in faith, and our unique sisterhood as Catholic women of the Archdiocese for the Military Services.

Her gift is a beautiful act of service. I hope this inspires you to reflect on your faith walk and journey as a military service member, spouse, or retiree!

Scripture teaches us –

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10 (NAB)

Thank you, Julie for your service in sharing the gift of song to the MCCW and God’s Kingdom.

Our Roads Lead Home….

When I think of all the places that we’ve been,
The memories, the challenges and friends.
Knowing that your grace oh God, keeps us faithful, strong and true
Our roads lead home, our roads lead home, they lead us home to you.

A road paved with hardships becomes the path of grace.
Led by faith we face our new beginnings
Fill us Oh Lord and move us toward the home you have prepared.
Our roads lead home, our roads lead home, they lead us home to you.

Our Home is the place of our well-being.
This sanctuary warm and filled with peace.
A domicile that’s built by hands both human and divine.
United in Faith, strengthened by friends.
Love without fail through this life to the next.
The road we travel is the golden thread, our lifeline.

We’re on the journey straight until the end.
Jesus is the stepping stone, the rock, the sure foundation.
Our roads lead home, our roads lead home, they lead us home to you.
Our roads lead home, our roads lead home, they lead us home to you.

    This is simply beautiful and it touches my heart and reminds me of all my CWOC friends from all over who prayed for me, laughed with me, helped me be a better woman, and hold a place in my heart today.
