Representative Text

1 Broad the road of evil,
And the crown is there,
Sowing to the whirl wind,
Laying up despair;
If you’re in the broad road,
Flee from it today,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way.

Refrain:
Face the other way,
Face the other way,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way.
If you’re in the broad road,
Flee from it today,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way.

2 What the Lord commandeth,
Hear it and obey,
Ere too late forever,
Face the other way;
If you’re in the broad road,
Flee from it today,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way. [Refrain]

3 In the way so narrow,
Where His people go,
Let your feet be trading,
Sinner here below;
If you’re in the broad road,
Flee from it today,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way. [Refrain]

4 “Blessed of my Father!”
Hear the Savior say;
E’en this moment choose Him,
Face the other way;
If you’re in the broad road,
Flee from it today,
If you’re looking sinwards,
Face the other way. [Refrain]
