1 On the pathway as you journey,
There are hearts for you to cheer,
There is much for you to do in Jesus’ name;
There are those for whom He suffered,
Who His name will never hear,
If you fail His blessed gospel to proclaim.
Brighten some pathway as you journey along,
Cheer it and bless it with a message of song;
Someone is longing for a kindly word today,
You can help them all along life’s way.
2 There are burdens to be lifted,
There are wrongs that you may right,
Many hungry souls with manna you may feed;
Blinded eyes to you are turning
For the blessed gospel light;
Will you not their tender pleadings quickly heed? [Refrain]
3 There are many hands that beckon,
As you journey on the way,
There are pleading voices raised in piteous cry;
Do not then refuse to scatter
Blessings round you while you may,
For the days are passing, quickly passing by. [Refrain]
