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.
