Representative Text

1 There are but two ways in life, my friend,
The wrong and the right, the false and the true;
They’re counter to each from end to end,
Save eternity limits the two.

Refrain:
There are but two ways, but two ways in life,
There are but two ways, but two ways in life;
The one leads to glory, and the other leads to death:
Oh, which of the two will you take?

2 There are but two roads in life, my friend,
The straight and narrow, the broad and the plain;
Think well which one you will take, my friend,
You will ne’er travel this way again. [Refrain]

3 The one is beset with foes, my friend,
’Tis full of allurements, but danger is there;
The other leads steadily on, my friend,
To a Heav’n that is bright and fair. [Refrain]
