O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
There are two ways for trav'lers, only two ways;
One's a hill pathway of battle and praise;
The other leads downward; tho' flow'ry it seems,
Its joy is a phantom, its love is a dream,
Its joy is a phantom, its love is a dream.

There are two guides for trav'lers, only two guides;
One the Good Shepherd, e'en thro' the death tides;
The other, the serpent, beguiling with sin,
Whose beauty external hides poison within,
Hides poison within, death poison within.

There are two homes for trav'lers, only two homes;
One's the fair city where evil ne'er comes;
The other, sin's wages eternal and dread,
The fate of the lost ones, the doom of the dead,
The doom of the dead, the sorrowful dead.

Quickly enter the strait way, leading to life;
Shun the wide gateway of folly and strife.
The Spirit invites you this moment to come; The Savior is waiting to welcome you home;
To welcome you home, to welcome you home.
