3164. I Walk the King's Highway

1. I know not where the road will lead
I follow day by day,
Or where it ends: I only know
I walk the King’s highway.

2. I know not if the way is long,
And no one else can say;
But rough or smooth, up hill or down,
I walk the King’s highway.

3. And some I love have reached the end,
But some with me may stay,
Their faith and hope still guiding me:
I walk the King’s highway.

4. The way is truth, the way is love,
For light and strength I pray,
And through the years of life, to God,
I walk the King’s highway.

5. The countless hosts lead on before,
I must not fear nor stray;
With them, the pilgrims of the faith,
I walk the King’s highway.

6. Through light and dark the road leads on
Till dawns the endless day,
When I shall know why in this life
I walk the King’s highway.
