1 I am happy ev’ry day,
I am happy all the way,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway;
Things may seem all right or wrong,
Trusting still, I march along,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain:
Walking in the King’s highway!
I am walking in the King’s highway!
I am happy in the Lord,
I am trusting in His word,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway.

2 Lions oft seem in the way—
Straight ahead, I keep and pray,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway;
Then a victory is gained,
For I find the lions chained,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

3 I rejoice e’en when I’m sad,
For His promise makes me glad,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway;
For each wound I have a balm,
In the fight I wear a palm,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

4 Such baptisms of His love!
Such anointings from above,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway;
Jesus comes and walks with me,
More in Him each day I see,
Since I’m walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]
