Oh, dear brother, take this warning:
Don’t let old Satan hold your hand.
You’ll be lost in sin forever;
You’ll never reach the promised land.

Chorus: The old crossroad now is waiting;
Which one are you going to take?
One leads down to destruction,
The other one to the pearly gates.

One road leads up to Heaven;
The other one goes down below.
Will you be ready then, my brother,
To shun the one goes down below?
