Representative Text

1 Days are filled with gladness, nights are filled with song,
Walking the King’s highway;
And the world grows brighter, as we pass along,
Walking the King’s highway.

Refrain:
Walking, walking in the King’s highway,
Walking the King’s highway
To the place of many mansions,
I shall come at last,
Walking the King’s highway.

2 Music from the homeland fills me with delight,
Walking the King’s highway;
Visions of the glory break upon my sight,
Walking the King’s highway. [Refrain]

3 Crown’d with tender mercies, guarded by His love,
Walking the King’s highway;
Jesus gives a foretaste of the joys above,
Walking the King’s highway. [Refrain]
