1 In service I find rich reward,
And blessing ev’ry day;
For since by faith I’ve found the Lord,
‘Tis glory all the way.

‘Tis glory, glory,
Glory, glory, ev’ry day!
Praise God! ‘tis glory,
‘Tis glory all the way!

2 I feel God’s glory when I sing,
I feel it when I pray;
In summer, winter, autumn, spring,
‘Tis glory ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 While seeking to discern His will,
While striving to obey;
I find that He my cup doth fill
With glory all the way. [Refrain]

4 Not only does God send me grace
To help me day by day;
But while He shows His smiling face,
‘Tis glory all the way. [Refrain]

5And when I bid the world good-bye,
At closing of life’s day;
I’ll shout when starting for the sky,
“’Tis glory all the way.” [Refrain]
