Representative Text

1 In the way cast up for the ransomed,
By countless millions trod,
In the way of life everlasting,
We’re marching home to God.

Marching, marching,
Marching in the King’s highway;
Marching, marching
Onward to the realms of day.

2 In the way cast up for the ransomed
What constant joy we know;
For the King himself, our Redeemer,
Is with us while we go. [Refrain]

3 In the way cast up for the ransomed,
By fountains cool and sweet,
We are gently led by the Saviour
To rest our weary feet. [Refrain]

4 In the way cast up for the ransomed,
Our pilgrim journey past,
We shall see the Kin in his beauty
And dwell with him at last. [Refrain]
