1 Strait is the way, the door is strait,
That leads to joys on high;
'Tis but a few that find the gate,
While thousands pass it by.
2 Beloved self must be denied,
The mind and will renewed,
Passion suppressed, and patience tried,
And vain desires subdued.
3 Lord! can a feeble, helpless worm
Fulfill a task so hard?
Thy grace must all my work perform,
And give the free reward.
