Representative Text

1 Happy on a highway to a better land,
We are moving onward at the Lord’s command,
Spurning ev’ry offer of the evil hand,
Happy on the way to glory land.

Happy on the way to glory land,
Singing as we go to that fair strand;
Leaving ev’ry sorrow in this vale below,
Happy on the way to glory land.

2 We should never falter nor a moment stand,
Following the Leader of our mighty band;
He will guide us safely o’er the desert sand,
Happy on the way to glory land. [Refrain]

3 Going to that home the Savior for us planned,
Hoping soon to join the heav’nly chorus grand;
Evermore to sing on that eternal strand,
Happy on the way to glory land. [Refrain]
