Lord, I have started to walk in the light
That shines on my pathway so clearly, so bright;
Iíve bade the world and its follies adieu,
And now with my Savior I mean to go through.
Iím going through, Iím going through,
Iíll pay the price, whatever others do;
Iíll take the way with the Lordís despisŤd few;
Iím going through, Jesus, Iím going through.
Many once started to run in this race,
But with our Redeemer they could not keep pace;
Others accepted because it was new,
But not very many seem bound to go through.
Let me but follow my Lord all alone,
And have for my pillow, like Jacob, a stone,
Rather than vain worldly pleasures pursue,
Than turn from this pathway and fail to go through.
Come then, my comrades, and walk in this way
That leads to the kingdom of unending day;
Turn from your idols and join with the few,
Start in with your Savior, and keep going through.
