O soul by evil driven,
Needing both light and cheer,
That hope to you be given,
Jesus your Savior hear.


I am the way, the truth and the life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me;
I am the way, the truth and the life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me

In search of worldly pleasure,
Downward you go each day,
While others lay up treasure,
Following life’s true way.


Just let the Savior guide you,
Happy you then will be,
For He will stay beside you,
Keeping you pure and free.


If you would meet in Heav­en
Those that you miss today,
The Blessèd One must lead you—
He is the only way.



The Blessed Road

Three roads led out of Calvary,
The first was broad and straight,
That Pilate and great Caiaphas
Might ride thereon in state.

The second was the felons’ road,
Cruel and hard to tread
For those who bore the cross’s load
For those whose footsteps bled.

The third road slunk through mean defiles,
Fearing the open sky;
And Judas crept the dreadful mile
To Calvary thereby.

The high road up to Calvary
Was blotted from the land;
Where Judas hid, the jackal cries
By thorn-cursed drifts of sand.

But that poor road the felons went—
How fair it now appears,
Smoothed wide by myriads penitent
And flower-set by their tears!
