There’s a beautiful way that the saints of God
For ages have faithfully, safely trod;
And now, in believing His precious Word,
I’ve found it in Christ, my Lord.

Refrain

I’ve found the beautiful way,
I’ve found the beautiful way,
Shining as bright as the day,
I’ve found it in Christ, my Lord.

’Tis the beautiful way where no shadows fall,
Where naught can molest, nor my soul appall,
For Jesus is with me, my All in All,
I’ve found it in Christ, my Lord.

Refrain

Fully trusting my Lord, His sweet voice I hear,
In grief and in sorrow I feel Him near;
He lovingly, tenderly dries each tear,
I’ve found it in Christ, my Lord.

Refrain

In this beautiful way, where His mercies shine,
He holds me and keeps me by love divine,
This beautiful, beautiful way is mine,
I’ve found it in Christ, my Lord.
