38b WINDHAM - traditional
1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Broad is the road that lead to death,
And thousands walk together there;
But wisdom shows a narrow path,
With here and there and traveler.
"Deny thyself and take thy cross."
Is the Redeemer's great command.
Nature must count her gold but dross,
If she would gain this heav'nly land.
The fearful soul that tires and faints,
And walks the way fo God no more
Is but esteemed almost a saint
And makes his own destruction sure.
Lord, let not all my hopes be vain,
Create my heart entirely new,
Which hypocrites could ne'er attain,
Which false apostates never knew.
