Representative Text

1. On the highway of the King,
Children’s happy voices ring,
Songs of joy and gladness singing,
To our God above.
Many round us, pressing on,
Gain new courage with the song,
Unto the wearied, hope ’tis bringing,
Of sweet rest and love.

Then on the highway of the King,
Far let the silvery echoes ring,
Listening hearts that pass along,
Linger to hear the song.
All who journey on the road,
Leading ever on to God,
Join with the children,
Glad praises singing,
To the King.

2. On the highway of the King,
Far and hard the journeying;
All the prayers, thy footsteps heeding,
Only God has known.
Little children, walk in love,
Lift your eyes to Heav’n above;
Long though the way, at last ’tis leading,
To the heav’nly throne. [Refrain]
