1 In sorrow I wandered, my spirit opprest,
But now I am happy—securely I rest;
From morning till ev'ning glad carols I sing,
And this is the reason: I walk with the King.
I walk with the King, hallelujah!
I walk with the King, praise His name!
No longer I roam, my soul faces home,
I walk and I talk with the King.
2 For years in the fetters of sin I was bound,
The world could not help me—no comfort I found;
But now like the birds and the sunbeams of Spring,
I’m free and rejoicing—I walk with the King. [Refrain]
3 O soul near despair in the lowlands of strife,
Look up and let Jesus come into your life;
The joy of salvation to you He would bring;
Come into the sunlight and walk with the King. [Refrain]
