Representative Text

1 There’s a trail that so many follow,
It is broad and with world-pleasure lined;
But its ending is sorrow and darkness,
And its portals are easy to find.

Are you on the right trail, my brother?
Are you bound for the land of delight?
Is the Savior your guide and your helper
He will lead to the mansions of light.

2 There’s a trail that leads up to glory,
‘Tis the straight and the narrow way;
It will lead you beside the still waters,
To the home of an unending day. [Refrain]

3 On the trail that Jesus has blazoned,
None of heaven can ever fail;
He will lead to the mansions now waiting,
At the end of the bright glory trail. [Refrain]
