Hymn Text: The Strait and Narrow Path

Date: January 8th, 2017

Title: The Strait and Narrow Path

Meter: 7 6 7 6 D

Topic: endurance, service, faith



It is easy to grow cold

And blind to others’ needs.

It is easy to withhold

Our needed kindly deeds.


But this we can rise above

Instead become a saint.

With no other goal than love

We can serve and not faint.


It is easy to forget

Our Heavenly Father’s hand

To cross the bounds He has set

To strive to understand.


But we with our faith can see

What escapes mortal eyes

To see why these things must be,

To wait upon the prize.


It is easy to forget

Life’s purpose day to day

And then to despair and quit

To walk the righteous way.


But this is but a moment

In vast eternity

And how this short life is spent

Determines what we’ll be.
