1 Jesus, my all to heav'n has gone,
He whom I fix my hopes upon;
His track I see, and I'll pursue
The narrow way till him I view.
I'll pursue him, I'll pursue him,
Yes, I'll pursue my Lord and King.
2 This is the way I long have sought,
And mourned because I found it not;
My brief a burden long has been,
Because I was not saved from sin. [Refrain]
3 Now will I tell to all around,
What a dear Saviour I have found;
I'll point to thy redeeming blood,
And say, "Behold the way to God." [Refrain]
