The path I’m given is rough,
Full of rocks are on the trail I take.
The road I travel is narrow,
Difficult to get through is the way.
Yet there’s an easier way to go,
A wide and clear road is an option.
But I won’t go on this trail,
This easy street I will not tread.
For this road leads only to death,
Life is found only in the narrow way.
Stumble I may on this life path,
On this road to life, I will fall.
But I’m not alone on the journey,
On this trek, I have help.
My Lord is with me to lift me up,
To hold my hand, Jesus is by my side.
I will take the rough path with boldness,
The wide trail of death I’ll abstain.
I’ll choose to follow my Christ,
The road to oblivion, I will avoid.
Life is the place I long to be,
My course is set upon my Christ.
