1. Living below in this old sinful world,

Hardly a comfort can afford;

Striving alone to face temptations sore,

When could I go but to the Lord?

Where could I go, O where could I go,

Seeking a refuge for my soul?

Needing a friend to help me in the end,

Where could I go but to the Lord?

2. Neighbours are kind, I love them ev’ry one,

We get along in sweet accord;

But when my soul needs manna from above,

Where could I go but to the Lord?

3. Life here is grand with friends I love so dear,

Comfort I get from God’s won Word;

Yet when I face the chilling hand of death,

Where could I go but to the Lord?

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)
