1 From duty’s straight and narrow way,
O never turn aside;
It is the path to endless day,
O never turn aside.

O never, never turn aside,
O never, never turn aside;
Be firm for God and truth and right,
And never turn aside.

2 Tho’ comrades jeer with silly talk,
O never turn aside;
In wisdom’s path it pays to walk,
O never turn aside. [Refrain]

3 Someone is stepping in your track,
O never turn aside;
From death and ruin keep him back,
O never turn aside. [Refrain]

4 Life’s prospects fair, why should you blight?
O never turn aside;
Take Christ to be your guide and light,
O never turn aside. [Refrain]
