Some are traveling on a lonesome road
Where all is dark and dreary,
Though the road leads down,
'Tis a tiresome way.
On which they all grow weary.
Some will hurry on this road,
While others go more slowly,
While others take the upward way
On roads that God made holy.
Oh, glorious road our Savior trod,
When He brought the blessed story!
Get on this road; get on today
And walk with Him to glory.
'Tis a holy road from earth to heaven
Where the lights are brightly shining.
A road that leads to glory land
Where the clouds have silver linings.
The way the saints of old have trod
On their way to that great kingdom
To reach the sacred throne of light,
Where Christ has full dominion,
One road leads up; the other down.
One of which we must be choosing.
On one we'll gain eternal life.
On the other we'll be losing,
Why choose the dark and lonely way,
And repeat the sad old story,
Just take the bright and shining way,
And walk with God to glory.
Choose the way, the shining way,
It is full of love and beauty,
Go with God go all the way.
With love fulfill your duty.
The days will quickly pass away.
Then we'll reach heavens portals,
And sing around God's throne of grace
There dwell with the immortals.
No more sorrow, no more pain,
No cares, no wants, no sadness.
With angels we'll be singing round
The great white throne in gladness.
The sweetest music to the ear
The golden harps resounding
While anthems roll through skies above.
God's grace is still abounding.
