1 Happy, happy, happy are the songs we sing,
Walking in the footsteps of our Saviour King,
Marching with the ransomed in the King’s highway;
Happy, happy, happy, happier ev’ry day.

Happy, happy, happy happier all the day,
Happy, happy, happy, walking the King’s highway;
Once the way was dreary, now the sweet sunbeams play,
Happy, happy, happy happier all the day.

2 Happy, happy, happy, to our home above,
Tho’ we’re often tempted, we will never rove;
Kept from ev’ry danger by our faithful Guide,
Happy, happy, happy, happier side by side. [Refrain]

3 Happy, happy, happy, oh, what joy to go!
On the way to glory conq’ring ev’ry foe;
Singing with the ransomed songs beyond compare,
Happy, happy, happy, happier over there. [Refrain]
