Verse:
On the road to Damascus I have seen the light
I have fought the hard battles, I have fought the good fight
Done some things I’m not proud of, consumed with blind hatred
Self-righteous unbeliever, forgetting all that’s sacred
Chorus:
I hear voices speak to me, could be angels from above
Though faith and hope still live on -The greatest law is love
On the road, on the road, on the road to Damascus
Verse:
When I was a foolish child I could be no more
I’ve given up my childish ways; clearly see what I’m here for
Love will always be patient, it believes and endures
Love never ends; you’ll find it in the mirror whole and pure
Chorus:
I hear voices speak to me, could be angels from above
Though faith and hope still live on -The greatest joy is love
On the road, on the road, on the road to Damascus
Bridge:
We’re all on the road, faced many trials to get there
Will we choose our enlightenment to heal and love and share?
Verse:
I may speak as an angel; move mountains with my faith
Give away all that I have, without love, no state of grace
This is my prayer for you, that your love will overflow
With gentleness and wisdom, you’ll gain more than you know

Chorus:
I hear voices speak to me, could be angels from above
Though faith and hope still live on -The greatest gift is love
On the road, on the road, on the road to Damascus
On the road to Damascus
