Ways of the Lord no. 394

1. The way to heaven is
Narrow, with thorns entwined;
But all who choose this way, happiness find.
Strait is the gate, we know;
Through it we each must go.
Battles just stir our faith onward to go.
2. Downward the way doth wind—
I'm lifted, heart and mind;
All is corruptible on earth, I find.
My spirit glad can be,
For from the flesh it's free.
In all that comes my way, glory I see.
3. I've vict'ry on the cross;
It frees from flesh and dross.
To my eternal home, patient, I run.
Suff'rings that I must bear
Add to my glory there.
Nailed to the cross by faith—vict'ry is won.
4. Lord, I give thanks to Thee;
Thou knowest best for me.
Wherever Thou dost lead, I'll follow Thee.
Chast'ning and trials long,
Which from the Father come,
Bind Jesus close to me by love's true bond
