Hymn/Song Information

THE STRAIT GATE




Strait the gate, the way is narrow,
To the realms of endless bliss,
Sinful men and vain professors,
Self-deceived, the passage miss:
|: Rushing headlong, :|
Down they sink the dread abyss.


Sins and follies unforsaken,
All will end in deep despair;
Formal prayers are unavailing,
Fruitless is the worldling’s tear:
|:Small the number, :|
Who to wisdom’s path repair.


Thou who art thy people’s guardian,
Condescend my guide to be;
By the Spirit’s light unerring,
Let me thy salvation see;
|: may I never, :|
Miss the way that leads to thee.


Life is wasting, death approaching,
Time admits of no delay;
Be it then my resolution,
Now to enter while I may:
|: Strait the gate is, :|
But it leads to endless day.
