Where Are You Going My Brother


Where are you going, my brother,
Wandering day by day?
Swiftly your footsteps are passing on
Over the downward way.
Oh, turn from your path today,
Brother, no longer stray.
The road will be bright,
If you turn to the right,
Oh, brother, no longer stray.
Going, going,
Over the downward way,

Refrain:
Oh, turn from your path today,
Brother, no longer stray,
The road will be bright,
If you turn to the right,
Oh, brother, no longer stray.

Easy and smooth is the down grade,
Steep is the upward way,
Broad is the road which will lead to death,
Brother, no more delay.
Tho’ hidden, there’s danger near,
List to the warning clear.
There’s horror and fright
With the darkness of night,
Oh, brother, the message hear.
Going, going,
Over the downward way, [Refrain]

Narrow and straight is the right way,
That leads to the land of bless,
Glory and beauty and brightness,
Far better home than this!
Then fly from the wrath to come,
Haste to the heav’nly home;
Thy Savior awaits
At the pearly gates,
Oh, brother, no longer roam.
Going, going,
Over the downward way, [Refrain]
