Lyrics

Jesus Christ the Lord
Opened up the way to glory
When He died to save us
From our ruined state,
And He asks that we shall
Go tell the world the story,
How His blood will save them
From their awful fate.

Refrain

Jesus opened up
The way to Heaven’s gate
When He died on the cross,
To redeem all the lost;
He prepared the road that leads
To His abode,
’Tis a road marked by blood
But it leads us home to God.

And the way is marked by
The footprints of the Savior,
With His blood he made it,
Made it plain and straight;
If you walk that way,
It will lead you into Heaven,
Lead you safely into
Glory’s golden gate.

Refrain

Sinner, will you come
And join in this heav’nly journey,
Walk the bloody pathway
That the Savior trod?
Then when life is over
And all the sheaves are garnered,
You will meet the Savior
And be not afraid.

Refrain
