Behind the Song:

This is a non-traditional version of T’filat Haderech, the prayer for traveling. The idea was that whether or not we are away from home, there is a way to navigate this crazy road we call life that is filled with love and openness. How do we want to live our lives? We hope that the road ahead leads us to good places, but we also hope that we learn for the better from what we have left behind.


Let our steps be light
And our thoughts unburdened
May the stars be bright
And our journeys certain

Let us make new friends
Call no one stranger
Never meet dead ends
And be led away from danger

Please bless our road
The journeys we have yet to travel on
Please bless our road
And may we learn from where we came from

Let us not forget
To stop and smell the flowers
May we look ahead
But live for every passing hour

Let us stand our ground
For the things that we believe in
May we make a sound
For those silenced and those lost in weeping


Please bless our road

For the times we don’t know where to go
Give us the strength to press forward


Please bless our road

Let our steps be light
Let us make new friends
Let us stand our ground
Let us not forget
