The Two Gates

By Judy Lee Jenkins

In Matthew 7:13 Jesus talks about
two different gates that we can enter. Each has it’s
own road that leads to each gate. One road is very
broad and the other very narrow.

Jesus explains that
many will be on the broad road and at the end of it will be
death and destruction. However, a few will find the
narrow road and it will lead to life and where Jesus dwells.

He then admonishes us to find that narrow gate by avoiding
those things that lead us down the wrong path.
Reflecting on the words of Jesus I wrote the following
song:

JESUS SPOKE OF TWO GATES WE ENTER
EACH WITH IT’S ROAD SIDE BY SIDE,
THE ONE TO THE RIGHT STRAIGHT AND NARROW,
BUT THE ONE TO LEFT BROAD AND WIDE.

melody change

IN OUR JOURNEY OF LIFE,
WE CHOOSE WHICH PATH WE’LL TRAVEL,
SOMETIMES IT’S EASY AND SMOOTH,
SOMETIMES AS ROUGH AS GRAVEL!!

chorus

IT’S OUR CHOICE TO MAKE
WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?
WITH ETERNITY AT STAKE,
WE MUST CHOOSE SO CAREFULLY!!

verse 2

THE NARROW ROAD LEADS STRAIGHT AHEAD,
NO BEND NOR CURVE TO SEE,
BUT THE WIDE ROAD WINDS WITH TWISTS AND TURNS,
JUST AS CROOKED AS IT CAN BE!!

melody change

THE NARROW ROAD HAS WARNING SIGNS FROM JESUS
TO GUIDE US EVERY DAY,
BUT THE WIDE ROAD SEEKS THE WORLD AND ITS PLEASURES
ALONG THE WAY!!

chorus

IT’S OUR CHOICE TO MAKE
WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?
WITH ETERNITY AT STAKE,
WE MUST CHOOSE SO CAREFULLY!!

verse 3

MANY WILL FOLLOW THE WIDE ROAD,
IT’S ALLURING AND EASY TO FIND,
BUT ONLY A FEW SEEK THE NARROW ROAD,
WHERE EXISTS JOY AND PEACE OF MIND.

melody change

THE WIDE ROAD LEADS TO DARKNESS AND STUMBLING
WHERE THE LOST ARE BLIND AND FALL!!
BUT THE OTHER TO THE LIGHT OF OUR SAVIOR
WHO DIED TO SAVE US ALL!!

chorus

IT’S OUR CHOICE TO MAKE
WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?
WITH ETERNITY AT STAKE
WE MUCH CHOOSE SO CAREFULLY!!

verse 4

REMEMBER TO LOOK UP TO JESUS,
WHEN YOU DECIDE WHICH ROAD TO CHOOSE,
BECAUSE WITHOUT HIS LIGHT TO GUIDE YOU,
IT’S YOUR SOUL THAT YOU COULD LOSE!!

melody change

THE WIDE ROAD LEADS TO DEATH AND DESTRUCTION,
MUCH SUFFERING AND STRIFE,
BUT THE NARROW ROAD TO JESUS AND HEAVEN
WHO GIVES US ETERNAL LIFE!!

chorus

IT’S OUR CHOICE TO MAKE
WHICH ONE WILL IT BE?
WITH ETERNITY AT STAKE.
WE MUCH CHOOSE SO CAREFULLY
OUR DESTINY, OUR DESTINY FOR ETERNITY!!! (music comes
to a climax)
