8546. In Which Road Do You Travel?

1 In which road do you travel, my brother?
Which one I would like to know;
Is it in the bright pathway to glory,
Or in the one leading below?

Do not walk in the wide road, tho’ pleasant,
It leadeth away from thy God;
Come and walk in the road that is narrow,
It ends in the city of God.

2 There are only two roads, my dear brother;
In one of them you must now be;
Are you living in sin and its pleasure,
Or have you from sin been made free? [Refrain]

3 Do not rest till you answer this question,
"Which way do I travel along?
Do I walk with the few up to glory,
Or on the broad way with the throng?" [Refrain]

4 Come, O come to the dear Friend of sinners,
To Jesus, the Door and the Way;
He now lovingly offers salvation,
He’s waiting to you save you today. [Refrain]
