Representative Text

1 There is a straight and narrow path
That leads to joys above;
Where free from sin, and fear, and wrath,
The air is filled with love.

Chorus:
Show me the path of life,
Show me the path of life;
Show me the path of life,
That I may walk therein;
Show me the path of life,
That I may walk therein.

2 Amid earth’s tumult and its strife,
Amid its toil and care,
How few will seek the path of life,
And less do enter there. [Chorus]

3 The eager throng is pressing on;
With breathless haste they fly
From toy to toy, till life is gone,
And then for mercy cry. [Chorus]

4 Help me, O Lord, the path to shun,
That leads to endless woe;
Though broad the road that many run,
The narrow way I’d go. [Chorus]
