The Way To Heaven Is Narrow And Its Bles


The way to Heaven is narrow,
And its blessed entrance strait;
But how safe the little pilgrims
Who get within the gate!

The sunbeams of the morning
Make the narrow path so fair;
And these early little pilgrims
Find dewy blessings there.

They pass o’er rugged mountains,
But they climb them with a song;
For these early little pilgrims
Have sandals new and strong.

They do not greatly tremble
When the shadows night foretell;
For these early little pilgrims
Have tried the path so well.

They know it leads to Heaven,
With its bright and open gates,
Where for happy little pilgrims
A Savior’s welcome waits.
