On my way to Zion

Representative Text

1 On my way to Zion
Songs my lips employ;
Ever fresh the goodness,
Ever new the joy.

Refrain:
Happy songs of Zion,
Singing all the way;
Singing through the darkness,
Singing through the day.

2 Songs of joy before me
Shall my soul incite,
For I’m pressing onward
To the golden light. [Refrain]

3 God my hand is holding,
And a song he gives,
With the sweet assurance,
My Redeemer lives. [Refrain]

4 When with foes contending
For the victory,
Songs of great deliv’rance
Set my spirit free. [Refrain]
