1 Jesus my all to heaven is gone,
He whom I fix my hopes upon:
His track I see, and I'll pursue
The narrow way, till him I view.
2 The way the holy prophets went,
The road that leads from banishment,
The King's high way of holiness--
I'll go, for all his paths are peace.
3 This is the way I long have sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
My grief a burden long has been,
Because I was not saved from sin.
4 The more I strove against its power,
I felt its weight and guilt the more;
Till late I heard my Saviour say,
Come hither, soul, I am the way.
5 Lo! glad I come, and thou blest Lamb
Shalt take me to thee, whose I am:
Nothing but sin have I to give;
Nothing but love shall I receive!
6 Then will I tell to sinners round,
What a dear Saviour I have found;
I'll point to thy redeeming blood,
And say, Behold the way to God!
