HOW wonderful it is to walk with God
Along the road that holy men have trod;
How wonderful it is to hear him say:
Fear not, have faith, ‘tis I who lead the way!

2 How wonderful it is to talk with God
When cares sweep o’er my spirit like a flood;
How wonderful it is to hear his voice,
For when he speaks the desert lands rejoice!

3 How wonderful it is to praise my God,
Who comforts and protects me with his rod;
How wonderful to praise him every hour,
My heart attuned to sing his wondrous power!

4 How wonderful it is to fight for God,
And point poor sinners to the precious blood;
How wonderful it is to wield his sword
‘Gainst sin, the enemy of Christ, my Lord!

5 How wonderful ‘twill be to live with God
When I have crossed death’s deep and swelling flood;
How wonderful to see him face to face
When I have fought the fight and won the race!
