“There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen.”—Job 28:7


There is a path which no one knows;
Tis in this path the Christian goes;
It lies conceal’d from reason’s view,
From carnal, dead professors too.

‘Tis walked by those whom God hath taught,
To know themselves as less than nought;
And strange to tell, though there they walk,
They seldom of the way can talk.

For darkness often veils their minds,
And fiercely blow the wint’ry winds;
The savage beasts then rage and war,
And threat each moment to devour.

And so they would, but Jesus’ power
Upholds his saints in each dark hour:
In weakness He his strength displays,
And saves them by a many ways.

This path that always leads to God,
No hypocrite has ever trod;
Tis deep, mysterious, dark, unknown,
‘Tis walked by sheep, and sheep alone.

Jabez.
