A Friend to Man

Let me travel the road, the road of life

Tune: [Let me travel the road, the road of life]
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let me travel the road, the road of life,
Where the races of men press on,
The men who are weak from their load of sin,
And the men who are good and strong,
I would not look with a scorner’s eye,
Nor hurl the cynic’s ban,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.

2 Let me see as I travel upon my way,
On the great highway of life,
The men who press on with the ardor of hope,
And the men who are taint with strife,
Let me turn not away from their smiles and tears,
Both part of an all-wise plan,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.

3 Let me travel the road, the road of life,
Where some sin-burdened soul I’ll meet,
Let me be a balm to his aching heart,
And a guide to his wayward feet,
Let me tell him of Christ who has died to save,
Let me give him salvation’s plan,
Let me travel the road, the road of life,
And be a friend to man.
