Friends at the Spanish Steps


Awaiting friends
Soon to come
To see the glories of Rome

Matched against the hand of God
His world unfurled
Rome played a significant part

Romans ruled the world that day
That Christ saved me
By His sacrifice on Calvary

Poets and kings
Failed to note
That history changed that day

Now my friends will come and see
The ancient and the new
And be encouraged to see God’s grace

All the time He’s given
Wealth and pomp abound
The storied are not to be found

Across the dirty Tiber
Christians crouched in fear
God’s glory reigned

Rome marched
Jesus loved
People set free

My friends and I
Will see the Son
In Rome’s history
