Melodies of Praise Lyrics
Hymn No.166

First Line: I'm Going Through,

Lord, I have started to walk in the light
Shining upon me from heaven so bring;
I bade the world and its follies adieu,
I’ve started in Jesus and I’m going thro’.

I’m going thro’, I’m going thro’,
I’ll pay the price, whatever others do;
I’ll take the way with the Lord’s despised few;
I’m going thro’, Jesus, I’m going thro’.

O there are many who start in the race,
But with the light refuse to keep pace;
Others accept it because it is new,
But not very many expect to go thro’. [Refrain]

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 thro’. [Refrain]

O brother, now will you take up the cross?
Give up the world and count it as dross;
Sell all thou hast and give to the poor,
Then go thro’ with Jesus and those who endure. [Refrain]
