Representative Text

1 As on the path of life we tread,
We come to many a place,
Where, if not careful, we may fall
And sink into disgrace.

Don’t step there,
Don’t step there,
Don’t step there,
For if not careful we may fall,
Don’t step there.

2 Some idle habit, word or thought,
Some sin, however small,
May make us stumble in the path,
And stumbling, we may fall. [Refrain]

3 Our fellow travelers on the road,
We’ll watch with anxious care,
And when they reach some dangerous spot,
We’ll warn them: “Don’t step there.” [Refrain]
