O lost one in the wilds of sin,
So long from God away;
Before thee lies an open path,
Where thou canst walk today.

For if thou shalt confess the Lord,
And in thine heart believe;
His Word is sure, it stands secure,
Thou shalt be saved,
Thou shalt be saved.

So many roads across the marsh
But lead to vales of night;
This one, the true and living way,
Ends in the fadeless light.


How many paths at first seem fair,
That lead to loss and pain!
This one yields comfort all the way,
The end eternal gain.
