1. What poor, despised company
    Of travellers are these;
Who walk in yonder narrow way,
    Along the rugged maze?
Ah! They are of a royal line,
    All children of a King;
Heirs of immortal crowns divine,
    And loud for joy they sing.

2. Why do they then appear so mean,
    And why so much despised?
Because of their rich robes unseen
    The world is not apprized.
Why do they shun that pleasing path,
    Which worldlings love so well?
Because it is the road to death,
    The certain way to hell.

3. Why do they walk the narrow road,
    Along the rugged maze?
Because this way their Leader trod–
    They love and keep His ways.
What! Is there then no other road
    To Salem’s happy ground?
Christ is the only way to God–
    No other can be found.
