Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Tune: KING'S HIGHWAY
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

Refrain:
It's a highway to heaven,
none can walk up there but the pure in heart.
It's a highway to heaven,
I am walking up the King's Highway.

1 My way gets brighter, my load gets lighter
Walking up the King's Highway.
There's joy in knowing with Him I'm going,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]

2 Don't have to worry, don't have to hurry
Walking up the King's Highway.
Christ walks beside me, angels to guide me,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]

3 If you're not walking, start while I'm talking
Walking up the King's Highway.
There'll be a blessing you'll be possessing,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]
