Hymn Text: Choosing a Path

Title: Choosing a Path

Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: agency, the strait and narrow path, the iron rod


When we our destination choose
Then we also choose our path
In one direction we will lose
All that the Father hath

In one direction we will gain
Inheritance divine
This straiter path helps us obtain
Despite its steep incline.


If we begin upon one trail
We must on it remain
For to the end we must prevail
And faithful steps sustain.

Until our destination’s found
And we see our reward:
A place to grovel on the ground
Or flourish with our Lord.

All the strange roads of Lehi’s dream
Are simple to obtain,
The spacious building, filthy stream
We must from them refrain.

The rod of iron marks the way
That leads us to the tree.
If we will grasp and never stray
It leads us there safely.
