Full Text

1 There’s a road winds up unto heav’n’s fair height,
To the dawn of the endless day;
From sunset dark to the sunrise bright,
Oh, friend, have you lost the Way.

Refrain:
Have you lost the Way, my brother?
From the path have you wandered wide?
Come back, come back, from the byways black,
To the Way of the Crucified.

2 There are byroads down from that pathway steep,
Into vales that are fair to view;
But, lurking hidden, the shadows creep,
Of sin in its darkest hue. [Refrain]

3 There’s a cross for all on this Way of life,
And our shoulders must share the load
Of earthly toil and the care and strife,
Till sudden shall end the road. [Refrain]

4 One hath trod this Way thro’ the years long past,
And today with His hand in mine,
How bright the journey that ends at last
Wherever His face doth shine. [Refrain]
