1 Since my Savior set me free,
And His grace avails for me,
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day;
All my hope is in the Lord,
In the promise of His Word;
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day.

Refrain:
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day,
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day;
As I keep in touch with Jesus,
And with joy His will obey,
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day.

2 Since from sin I am made whole,
I have peace within my soul;
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day;
In the toil and stress of life,
Midst its dangers, cares and strife,
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day. [Refrain]

3 What a joy it is to know,
AS with Christ I onward go;
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day;
In my sorrow He is near,
Giving comfort, peace and cheer;
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day. [Refrain]

4 Soon will come the glorious dawn
Of God’s never-ending morn,
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day;
Step by step He safely leads,
Bears my burden, fills my needs;
The way is growing brighter ev’ry day. [Refrain]

Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
