LYRICS:

On this narrow road I seek

What will not pass away

And come what may

Though joy or pain

On this road I’ll stay

 

All I have I’d gladly give

To buy this pearl I’ve found

Even if it costs my life

I’d be a fool

Not to lay it down

 

Few will understand

The choice I’ve made to walk this way

To count as rubbish

All I own

And hope in things unseen

 

All I have I’d gladly give

To buy this pearl I’ve found

Even if it costs my life

I’d be a fool

Not to lay it down

 

Mother and father

And sisters and brothers

Friends that I have loved

I’ll leave them behind

When he calls me to follow

I must be where he is

 

All I have I’d gladly give

To buy this pearl I’ve found

Even if it costs my life I’d be a fool

Not to lay it down
