Representative Text

1 Out from the hedges of this life,
And to the Lord your service give;
Out from the way of wrong and go the way of honor;
Out from the way that is a strife,
And go the way that you should live,
Then the angels of the heav’ns will sing.

Refrain:
Sing of His name with praise to Him,
Sing of His love and power to save,
Sing of the love and gladness there,
Over in that home beyond the grave.

2 Go ye among the ways of sin,
And throw a light to some poor soul,
Over the darkness of this life ’twill shine the brightest;
Into some heart a light within
Would be a loving, kind patrol,
Leading him into the home of homes. [Refrain]

3 Then your reward will be with Him
Whose light shall shine forever more,
Over the toils of life you’ll say ’tis well forever;
Into a world that ne’er shall end,
And where you’ll walk the golden shore,
Singing praises with the angels fair. [Refrain]
