"A Solitary Way"
By An Anonymous Christian
(A Classic Tract on How Christ Can Satisfy the Lonely Heart)
A copy of this little tract was found by me in a restaurant in New York City white waiting for my noonday lunch about two years ago. I procured and distributed many copies. Recently I have been compelled to walk in "a most SOLITARY WAY." The original was obtained by a gentleman while making a tour of Scotland, who says of it: "During many lonely hours, such as will come at times even in the most pleasant of foreign journeys, it was often read, and always with great comfort. It enabled me to realize more fully than ever before how wise and how loving God is in all his dealings toward his children. Grateful for the blessings the precious poem had brought to me, I published, on my return home, a large edition for free distribution. From far and near have come communications from those to whom it has proved helpful, and in response to many requests a fourteenth edition, making 185,000 in all, of the leaflet is now sent out to carry good cheer to those who wander in 'a solitary way.' " --J.H.S.

And though we be encircled by a host
A SOLITARY WAY (2)

And would you know the reason why this is?
In every heart he wishes to be first.
He therefore keeps the secret key Himself,
A SOLITARY WAY (3)
Isaiah 40:16; Psalm 34:22
And when beneath some heavy cross you faint,
And say, "I cannot bear this load alone,"
You say the truth. Christ made it purposely
