136. On the Jesus Way

1 Oh, there’s many a thorn on the Jesus way,
Many a thorn I know;
There is grief, and loss and the pain of the Cross
Wherever my feet may go.
But the Lord will heal all the wounds I feel
When the thorns have pricked me sore;
And He’s planted a rose where the briar grows,
For He’s walked this path before.

2 Oh, there’s many a storm on the Jesus way,
Many a storm I see,
When black is the cloud and the wind is loud,
And waves go over me.
But the Lord Himself is in my little ship,
And the storms obey His will;
At the word He hath said, “Be not afraid,”
My heart and the sea grows still.

3 Oh, there’s many a foe on the Jesus way,
Many a foe to fight;
And all the day we must watch and pray
To keep our armor bright.
But the Lord forever will be at my side
The tempter’s wiles to meet;
Tho’ the foe be strong, and the strife be long,
He can never know defeat.
