Verse 1: Lord, I have started to walk in the light, Shining upon me from heaven so bright; I bade the world and its follies adieu, I’ve started in, Jesus, and I’m going thru.
Verse 2: O, there are many who start in this race, But with the light refuse to keep pace; Others accept it because it is new, But not very many expect to go thru.
Verse 3: I’d rather walk with Jesus alone, Have for a pillow, like Jacob, a stone; Living each moment with His face in view, Than shrink from my pathway and fail to go thru.
Chorus: I’m going thru, yes, I’m going thru, I’ll pay the price whatever others do, I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few, And I’m going thru, Jesus, I’m going thru.
