Representative Text

1 In the path of sin I could not stay,
Now my heart is happy ev’ry day;
I am walking in the narrow way,
On the long, long road with Jesus.

Refrain:
On the long, long road with Jesus,
On the long, long road with Jesus;
Thro’ the days of weal or woe,
I am singing as I go
On the long, long road,
On the long, long road with Him.

2 On my path there shines a radiant Light,
And the bells of joy ring day and night;
I am walking in the sunshine bright,
On the long, long road with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When my heart is faint, He makes me strong,
And he bears my burden all day long;
I am singing now a glad new song,
On the long, long road with Jesus. [Refrain]

4 I shall reach that happy golden shore,
There to dwell in joy forevermore;
If I follow Him who goes before,
On the long, long road with Jesus. [Refrain]
