1 Lord, I have started to walk in the light,
Shining upon me from heaven so bright;
I bade the world and its follies adieu,
I’ve started in Jesus, and I’m going through.
I’m going through, yes, I’m going through;
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few,
I’m going through, Jesus, I’m going through.
2 Many they are who start in the race;
But with the light they refuse to keep pace;
Others accept it because it is new,
But not very many expect to go through. [Refrain]
3 I’d rather walk with Jesus alone,
And have for a pillow, like Jacob, a stone,
Living each moment with His face in view,
Than shrink from my pathway and fail to go through. [Refrain]
4 O brother, now will you take up the cross?
Give up the world, and count it as dross;
Sell all thou hast, and give to the poor,
Then go through with Jesus and those who endure. [Refrain]
