There’s an old, old, path
Where the sun shines thro’
Life’s dark storm clouds
From its home of blue.


In this old, old path
Made strangely sweet
By the touch divine
Of His blessèd feet.

Find the old, old, path
’Twill be ever new,
For the Savior walks
All the way with you.


In the old, old path
Are my friends most dear,
And I walk with them,
With the angels near.


’Tis an old, old path
Shadowed vales between,
Yet I fearless walk
With the Nazarene.
