I'm Going Through

D                       G           D
Lord, I have started to walk in the light
                               E         A
That shines on my pathway so clearly, so bright;
D                           G       D
I’ve bade the world and its follies adieu,
D                       A         D
And now with my Saviour I'm going through.

D                  G         D
I’m going through, I’m going through,
                        E           A
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
D                          G                D
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s annointed few;
D                         A         D
I’m going through, Jesus, I’m going through.

Many once started to run in this race,
But with our Redeemer they could not keep pace;
Others accepted because it was new,
But not very many seem bound to go through.


Let me but follow my Lord all alone,
And have for my pillow, like Jacob, a stone,
Rather than vain worldly pleasures pursue,
Than turn from this pathway and fail to go through.


Come then, my comrades, and walk in this way
That leads to the kingdom of unending day;
Turn from your idols and join with the few,
Start in with your Saviour, and keep going through.
