Representative Text

1 The path of the just is as a shining light,
That shineth more and more unto the perfect day;
Since I have been saved all my journey has been bright,
And it is growing brighter all the way.

Refrain:
Brighter ev’ry day, better all the way,
My path is growing brighter and better ev’ry day;
Brighter ev’ry day, heaven on the way,
My path is growing brighter ev’ry day.

2 The way may be narrow, but delightful still,
I have communion sweet, for Jesus talks with me;
I find sweet contentment to do His blessed will,
And joy for time and all eternity. [Refrain]

3 The way may be long, but at the end I see
The lights of heaven shine, where flows the crystal stream;
So as I press onward the shadows break and flee,
And just ahead I see the sunlight’s gleam. [Refrain]
