If you have passed a dangerous place
Somewhere along life’s way,
And know that others, too, will face
The same some future day,
You ought to place a red flag there,
Or firmly set a stake,
Thus warning them with honest care
For God and Heaven’s sake.
Then sound a strong, clear, warning note
Revealing Satan’s wiles,
Which may be done by word or vote,
Or by some self-denials;
But if you save a soul from sin,
A life from wreck and woe,
You’ll help yourself a crown to win
Where Heaven’s glories flow.
