I am looking for an old hymn "Two paths lie before you"? I am looking for the words and the Author as well as when it may have been written. I have it in another language and am pretty sure the original is in English. I think this is the title in English. Thank you

Hi again, I found a reference to a song with this title on a web site by doing a Yahoo search but not the song itself. So I hope it is in somebody's hymnbook.(?) Thank you

From Finest of the Wheat Male Chorus, edited by Geo. D. Elderkin, C. C. McCabe, John R. Sweney, Wm. J. Kirkpatrick (Evanston, Ill.: R. R. McCabe & Co., 1896), page 70, hymn 66:

[The sheet music can be seen at Hymnary.org – click the above link.]


THE TWO PATHS
Words by Fanny J. Crosby; music by Geo. C. Stebbins.
Copyright, 1888, by Ira D. Sankey.

1. Two paths lie before you; which one will you take?
For now is the time when a choice you should make.
The first leads to Jesus, the soul's dearest friend.
The other in darkness and ruin will end.

CHORUS: Which one will you take? Which one will you take?
Two paths lie before you; which one will you take?
Which one will you take? Which one will you take?
Two paths lie before you; which one will you take?

2. Two paths lie before you, the narrow and wide.
The first has its way-marks, the other no guide.
Think well ere the final decision you make.
Two paths lie before you; which one will you take?

3. The first has it trials, but you shall be strong
With Jesus your Savior to help you along.
The first has its crosses that all must endure,
And yet to the faithful the crown will be sure.

4. Two paths lie before you, and what will you say?
A question so urgent admits no delay.
If you would be happy this course you must take:
The good you must follow, the evil forsake.
