Companions (For the Companions of St Paul)

The road is long when your walk is lonely
And the world is not always your friend.
Some houses will not take you inside their walls
And some cities will drive you away.

At Thessalonica, they’ll roar till you leave;
At Ephesus they will pursue you.
Riots will rage and courts will declare
That the world is not always your friend.

Yes, the road is long when your walk is lonely,
But Christ’s body has many parts.
You once were their foe, now you are one
Of the parts whom His love draws together.

The world is not always your friend, it’s true,
But your greatest friend is its king,
And the road will never be lonely so long
As His body unites in His love.
