Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.@Matthew 7:14

Nevado del Ruiz Thomas L. Rhodes, 1923 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There is a way that leads unto God,
And ’tis the same that Jesus once trod;
None in it walk till cleansed from all sin,
Ah! there are few who journey therein.

Refrain

Help us, O God, to make now our choice,
And in Thy love and service rejoice;
Loyal and true, O help us to be,
Till we are safe in Heaven with Thee.

There is a way, alluring and fair,
Yet it will lead to death and despair;
Sorrow it brings, no rest or delight,
Many it tread by day and by night.

Refrain

Which of these ways, O which shall we go?
Home to our God, or downward to woe?
We for ourselves must quickly decide,
And by our choice forever abide.
