Je-sus my all to heaven is gone,

He whom I fix my hopes up-on;

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 mourn'd because I found it not;

My grief a burden long has been,

Because I was not saved from sin.

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 bless'd Lamb,

Shalt take me to thee as I am:

Nothing but sin have I to give,

Nothing but love shall I receive.

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!"
