An original hymn with text by Mark Fotheringham below.
YouTube video:

Hold to the rod that leads unto the tree;
You will soon pluck the good fruit which ripens there for thee.
Though mists of darkness cloud the path ahead,
If you hold to the Word of God, with confidence you'll tread.

Hold to the rod wherever you may roam.
Hold to the rod to find your way back home.
Hold to the rod. The path may be unclear.
If you hold to the rod, you will find that God is near.

From great and spacious buildings on your way,
Devils beckon the wicked far from the path to stray.
Mock not the righteous from those lofty halls,
For the day comes when all that pride shall crumble as it falls.


Fountains and streams can tempt you from the path,
But the waters are filthy, and lead to naught but wrath.
One way alone will lead you on to peace.
When you reach for the Tree of Life your joy will never cease.
