INTRO TO SONG – This song was inspired by a dream a friend of mine had and also Jeremiah 6:16.  It’s not about straying from our current walk with the Lord, or going back under the Old Testament law, but rather about getting back to the Biblical roots of our faith.    It's about re-examining our walks to ensure that what we believe and practice is in line with the Lord's eternal principles which he established from the very beginning...because in God's Kingdom, the way that leads to past truths is also the way that leads to our future destiny and victory in the lord.  Sometimes traditions and familiarity can blind us from eternal truths that are and have always been at the heart of our Biblical foundation - but for whatever reason have been lost or hidden from view.  The old man in this song represents all the Prophets and therefore the voice of God Himself that calls us back to the foundations of our faith...encouraging each of us to look beneath, examine the roots and foundations we've built our theology on, and ask the Lord for the old paths where-in is the good way...and there you'll find rest for your souls.


 

ANCIENT ROAD SONG –

 

I WAS WALKING A FAMILIAR ROAD , SEEKING ANSWERS FROM THE LORD, WHEN FROM

BEHIND I HEARD AN OLD MAN SAY, TIME TO RECLAIM THE ANCIENT WAY,

THERE BEHIND SOME BUSHES AND THORNS

                HE SHOWED ME A PATH THAT WAS BARELY WORN,

AFRAID TO LEAVE THE WAY I WAS ON,

                THEN THE OLD MAN BEGAN THIS SONG,

 

ANCIENT ROAD (PATH), I WILL FOLLOW YOU,

                TO A PLACE THAT’S OLD, AND YET FOREVER NEW

 THE PATH THAT LEADS TO REST, AND TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

ANCIENT ROAD, I HEAR YOU CALLING ME,

                BACK TO THE PAST, AND SOURCE OF EVERYTHING,

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I’D REACHED THE END, IT WAS ONLY TIME TO BEGIN AGAIN

(OR - OH HEAR THE PROPHETS SAY, COME WALK IN THE GOOD WAY)

…ANCIENT ROAD

 

SO I STARTED DOWN THAT NARROW ROAD, PAST GREEN FORRESTS,

TO A VALLEY BELOW, THERE STOOD AN ANCIENT MONUMENT

SOME AGELESS MARKER OR TESTAMENT

BENEATH THE MOSS ON THAT WEATHERED STONE, WERE NAMES OF PROPHETS FROM DAYS

OF OLD, JEREMIAH AND EZEKIEL, ZECHARIAH AND JOB (OR SAMUEL)

IT WAS THEN I KNEW I HAD TO GO ON, TRACING THE STEPS OF THOSE GREAT MEN OF GOD,

                AND LIKE THE OLD MAN WHO’D URGED ME ON, I BEGAN TO SING HIS PILGRIM SONG…

Thanks Pete for your comment. I agree, we have to go where the Lord leads. There is so much of God's Truth that is not being taught in main stream churches.

Ancient path that the Lord God has been teaching us is to live a holy life on the basis of the law of Moses, Prophet, and Christ's teaching without partiality.
