1 A happy sound is floating through the air,
Sweet hymns of praise the breezes to us bear,
While on our sight there gleams a banner fair,
The children are marching in the highway of the King.

Refrain:
The children are marching in the highway of the King,
The children are marching in the highway of the King,
With songs of faith and love they seek the land above,
The children are marching in the highway of the King.

2 Like flowers fair their joyous faces glow,
AS onward, upward day by day they go,
To blessed heights where living waters flow,
The children are marching in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

3 A youthful army evil foes to fight,
Their strength to use in battling for the right,
Before them beaming truth’s eternal light,
The children are marching in the highway of the King. [Refrain]

4 Oh, look rejoicing on the gladsome throngs,
Unite in singing Zion’s cheering songs,
Extolling Him to whom all praise belongs,
The children are marching in the highway of the King. [Refrain]
