Blessed Way

O 'tis blessed to belong to the household of our King

Tune: [O 'tis blessed to belong to the household of our King]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O 'tis blessed to belong to the household of our King,
It is blessed to be working for the Lord,
to be showing day by day
How delightful is his way,
And how easy to obey his precious word.

Blessed way, blessed way,
Waking, singing every day;
Blessed way, blessed way,
We are trav'ling in the safe and blessed way.

2 It is blessed to be found in the pathway of his choice,
To be walking with the blood washed ones in white;
Always kept in perfect peace
while our joys each day increase,
With the shining more and more of wisdom's light. [Chorus]

3 It is blessed to abide 'neath the shadow of his wings,
And to rest securely there where all is calm;
Having not one anxious fear,
Tho' the enemy be near,
For no weapon of the foe can do us harm. [Chorus]
