There is a path that leads to death and one that leads to life
One path is clear, easy to walk and oh what a beautiful sight
So much to do, so much to see, there’s so much to explore
Of all the things you’ll experience, it’ll leave you wanting more
Hands grasp at this and then at that, so much you can enjoy
So much to get, so much to gain, anything you can employ
Money, fame, fortune or whatever you could want
You could have it all…the further you walk, the more you hunt
The other path is muddy, limbs and leaves are overgrown
There are valleys to walk but you’ll have peace you’ve never known
This old dirt path leads up and down the mountains you will climb
Not much to gain for yourself, but your reward will come in time
Though not much to see, there’s much to learn, this way is narrow and straight
Which path you travel will determine your eternal fate
The first path described with wealth and gain seems so right to us
But none of it will mean a thing when we return to dust
You’re at the crossroads this very hour, which path will you choose
You can gain it all in your life on earth but ultimately your soul will lose
But if you walk the path less traveled and bank in heaven’s treasure
You’ll ever rejoice for you will have found your souls greatest treasure!
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
