1 Many in their search for Jesus
Wander where he does not stay,
We must seek him where he tarries—
Only in the narrow way.

Refrain:
Seek him there, seek him there,
Only in the narrow way;
None who seek fail to find,
Only in the narrow way.

2 In the path of worldly honor
Many feet are lured stray,
Far from happiness and Jesus,—
He is in the narrow way. [Refrain]

3 In the whirl of giddy pleasure
Many weary souls delay,
And they never meet with Jesus,—
He is in the narrow way. [Refrain]

4 O ye souls so long deluded,
Turn from self and sin away!
You can find the blessed Jesus
Only in the narrow way. [Refrain]
