In 1907, Cox moved from England to Canada. In 1908 he joined the Methodist church but soon converted to the Salvation Army, where he worked from the years 1909 until 1944, eventually becoming a Major. After he left the Salvation Army he devoted his focus to evangelical revival work. Over the course of his life, Cox has authored or composed approximately 400 songs.

One of these songs was The Pathway of Duty.

Matthew 7New International Version

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
