Funny (not funny ha-ha) asking me that question. I just finished watching the DVD of Pilgrim’s Progress: Journey to Heaven. It’s a modern adaptation of John Bunyan’s beloved classic tale.Pilgrim’s song is a song that is constantly humming in my head. I grew up with this song and I love the lyrics. Pilgrim Progress is a required reading at school, a literally tale written by John Bunyan when he was imprisoned. Perpetua is my second name.I found the lyrics after coming from a pilgrimage at All Roads Lead Home.
Man is lonely by birth. Man is only a pilgrim on earth. Born to be king, time is but a temporary thing, only on loan while on earth.

Like the grass on the lawn, we will pass by the way and be gone. A lesson to learn, we walk but once there’s no return. Time is always moving on.
Man is longing for One, for a song and a place in the sun, a home up above where ev’ry day is lived in love, for rest when the journey is done.
