1 I’ve enlisted in the army of Jehovah,
‘Neath His sceptre ev’ry talent I employ;
Daily walking with my King in sweet communion,
Of the riches of His kingdom I enjoy:

I am on the royal highway,
I am walking with my King;
All the way from earth to glory
I am walking with my King.

2 In the days of sin no more I seek to wander,
From transgression’s blighting woe my soul is free;
In the service of my Lord is now my pleasure,
At His table I am satisfied to be. [Refrain]

3 Just beyond there shines the King’s eternal city,
Far behind me are the paths no more I tread;
I am basking in the sunlight of salvation,
And I find no haunting snares that I should dread. [Refrain]
