68. I'm On the Shining Pathway

1 I am on the shining pathway,
Adown life’s short’ning years,
And my heart hath known its sorrows,
Mine eyes have seen their tears;
But I saw those shadows flee,
And the shining light I see,
While I’m trusting in the merit
Of the Man of Galilee.

2 My soul has had its conflicts
With mighty hosts of sin;
With deadly foes without me,
And deadlier foes within;
But I saw those legions flee,
And my soul found victory,
When I trusted in the merit
Of the Man of Galilee.

3 I am coming near the city
My Saviour’s hands have piled,
And I know my Father’s waiting
To welcome home His child;
For unworthy tho’ I be,
He will find a place for me,
For He is the King of glory—
The Man of Galilee.
