The Straight Route To Glory Before Me I


The straight route to glory before me I see,
The line of my Father’s survey;
For righteousness yearning, my whole heart is burning
To go ev’ry step of the way.

Chorus:
I’ll go ev’ry step of the way,
I’ll go ev’ry step of the way,
Come sorrow or pain, ’tis glory and gain
To go ev’ry step of the way.

Tho’ Satan may whisper, “Tomorrow you’ll fail,”
Admitting the vict’ry today;
For future behavior, I’ll trust in the Savior,
And go ev’ry step of the way. [Chorus]

Tho’ trials may press me and dangers be near,
“I’m with you,” I hear Jesus say;
We’ll keep close together, in all kinds of weather:
I’ll go ev’ry step of the way. [Chorus]

My friends may forsake me, because I am true,
Endeav’ring my purpose to sway;
With Christ and Him only, I cannot be lonely,
I’ll go ev’ry step of the way. [Chorus]

When light on my heart for the cleansing is shed,
I’ll welcome each heavenly ray;
Beholding the fountain, on Calvary’s mountain,
I’ll go ev’ry step of the way. [Chorus]
