702. The Highway of the King

1 We’re a band of happy pilgrims bound for our home above,
Walking in the highway of the King;
Our lips are filled with praises, our hearts are full of love,
Walking in the highway of the King.

Refrain:
Walking in the highway of the King,
Walking in the highway of the King;
With hearts all full of praise, we’re happy all our days,
Walking in the highway of the King.

2 This is the grand old highway our fathers all have trod,
Walking in the highway of the King;
The only way that leads us to heaven and to God,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

3 No unclean thing can ever pass o’er this holy way,
Walking in the highway of the King;
No danger can befall us, we’re safe by night and day,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

4 With songs of joy and gladness the ransomed now we see,
Walking in the highway of the King;
With garments pure and spotless, and hearts from sin made free,
Walking in the highway of the King. [Refrain]
