Representative Text

1 When the word of God is torn apart,
By the foolish ones today;
Clasp the Bible close to your heart
And keep upon the narrow way.

Refrain:
Keep in the narrow way,
Always in the narrow way;
Turn not to the left, nor to the right;
Follow Jesus day and night;
And keep in the narrow way,
Always in the narrow way;
In danger read God’s word and pray,
And keep in the narrow way.

2 In the narrow way there’s peace at night
When you kneel to God to pray;
Don’t forget to praise Him for the grace
That kept you in the narrow way. [Refrain]

3 Never yield to sin but stand your ground,
Do not hesitate to say,
I will not partake, I’m glory bound,
I’m walking in the narrow way. [Refrain]

4 When the journey’s over and at last
You have reached the shining way;
You will praise the Lord for mercies past,
That kept you in the narrow way. [Refrain]
