Brian T. Murphy & Joely Pittman - Broad is the road that leads to death (Station 2)

from Songs for Lent by New York Hymns



The cross is laid upon Jesus (Station 2)
Music: Brian T. Murphy
Words: Isaac Watts, 1707


Broad is the road that leads to death
And thousands walk there together

But wisdom shows a narrow path,
With here and there a traveler.

“Deny thyself, and take thy cross”
Is the Redeemer’s great command.

The fearful soul that tires and faints
And walks the ways of God no more

Is but esteemed almost a saint,
And makes his own destruction sure.

Lord let my hopes be not in vain
Create my heart entirely new.

–Words: Isaac Watts, 1707
