HIGH WAY




Jesus, my all, to heaven is gone,
He that I place my hopes upon;
His track I see, and I’ll pursue
The narrow way, till Him I view.


The way the holy prophets went,
The road that leads from banishment,
The King’s highway of holiness,
I’ll go, for all His paths are peace.


This is the way I long have sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
My grief, my burden, long have been,
Because I could not cease from sin.


The more I strove against its power,
I sinned and stumbled but the more;
Till late I heard my Saviour say,
“Come hither, soul, for I'm the Way.”


Lo! Glad I come; and Thou, dear Lamb,
Shalt take me to Thee, as I am;
Nothing but sin I thee can give;
Yet help me, and thy praise I'll give.


I'll tell to all poor sinners round,
What a dear Saviour I have found;
I’ll point to Thy redeeming blood,
And say, “Behold the way to God.”


No stranger may proceed therein,
No lover of the world and sin;
No lion, no devouring care,
No ravenous tiger shall be there.


No nothing may go up thereon
But travelling souls, and I am one:
Wayfaring men to Canaan bound,
Shall only in the Way be found.


Nor fools, by carnal men esteemed,
Shall err therein; but they redeemed
In Jesus’ blood, shall show their right
To travel there, till Heaven’s in sight.


---Alternative verses---


Jesus, my all, to heaven is gone,
He Whom I fix my hopes upon;
His track I see, and I’ll pursue
The narrow way, till Him I view.


This is the way I long had sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
Till late I heard my Saviour say,
"Come hither, soul; I am the way."


This is the way I long have sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
My grief a burden long has been,
Because I was not saved from sin.


Lo! Glad I come; and Thou, blest Lamb,
Wllt take me, guilty as I am;
Nothing but sin I thee can give;
Nothing but love shall I receive.


The more I strove against its power,
I felt its weight and guilt the more;
Till late I heard my Saviour say,
“Come hither, soul, I am the Way.”


Lo! Glad I come; and Thou, blest Lamb,
Shalt take me to Thee, as I am;
Nothing but sin have I to give;
Nothing but love shall I receive.


Now will I tell to sinners round,
What a dear Saviour I have found;
I’ll point to Thy redeeming blood,
And say, “Behold the way to God.”


Then will I tell to sinners round,
What a dear Saviour I have found;
I’ll point to Thy redeeming blood,
And say, “Behold the way to God.”


No stranger may proceed therein,
No lover of this world and sin;
Wayfaring men to Canaan bound,
Shall only in this way be found.
