Representative Text

1 The wise men sought him and worshiped at his feet,
Their treasures before him to lay,
And then, rejoicing, they sought their homes again,
But they traveled another way.

Refrain:
Since I found the Saviour, and laid my burdens down,
It’s better ev’ry day;
Since I have seen Jesus, and heard his pard’ning voice,
I am trav’ling another way.

2 In sin I wandered and found the way so dark,
But longing and watching for day;
My Saviour found me, and, since I heard his voice,
I am trav’ling another way. [Refrain]

3 No more I’m walking along the road of sin,
My pathway is brighter than day;
For I’ve found Jesus, and heard his pard’ning voice,
And I’m trav’ling another way. [Refrain]
