1. Jesus, my all, to heaven is gone, He whom I fix my hopes upon; His track I see, and I'll pursue The narrow way, till him I view. 2. The way the holy prophets went, The road that leads from banishment, The King's highway of holiness, I'll go, for all his paths are peace. 3. This is the way I long have sought, And mourned because I found it not; My grief a burden long has been, Because I was not saved from sin. 4. The more I strove against its power, I felt its weight and guilt the more; Till late I heard my Savior say, "Come hither, soul, I am the way." 5. Lo! glad I come; and thou, blest Lamb, Shalt take me to thee, as I am; Nothing but sin have I to give; Nothing but love shall I receive. 6. Then will I tell to sinners round, What a dear Savior I have found; I'll point to thy redeeming blood, And say, "Behold the way to God." Refrain: I'm on my journey home, To the new Jerusalem, So fare you well, I am going home.
