1. O brother, life’s journey beginning,

With courage and firmness arise!

Look well to the course thou art choosing;

Be earnest, be watchful, and wise!

Remember-two paths are before thee,

And both thy attention invite;

But one leadeth on to destruction,

The other to joy and delight.


God help you to follow His banner;

And serve Him wherever you go;

And when you are tempted, my brother;

God give you the grace to say “No!”

2. O brother; yield not to the tempter;

No matter what others may do;

Stand firm in the strength of the Master;

Be loyal, be faithful, and true!

Each trial will make you the stronger;

If you, in the name of the Lord,

Fight manfully under your Leader

Obeying the voice of His word.

3. O brother, the Saviour is calling!

Beware of the danger of sin;

Resist not the voice of the Spirit,

That whispers so gently within.

God calls you to enter His service-

To live for Him here, day by day;

And share by and by in the glory

That never shall vanish away.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
