Representative Text

1 Tho’ the cross for him I bear,
And reproach with him I share,
It is hallelujah all the way;
Long as I behold his face,
Taste his love and share his grace,
It is hallelujah all the way.

Chorus:
Hallelujah! Naught can hide my Savior’s face;
Hallelujah! Pure his love, and sweet his grace;
Brighter dawns each coming day,
Sweeter grows his love alway,
It is hallelujah all the way.

2 Tho’ each flower has its thorn,
And each day some woe is born,
It is hallelujah all the way;
Sorrow but the gold refines,
More to him my heart inclines,
It is hallelujah all the way. [Chorus]

3 Ev’ry day new heights I gain,
And to deeper joy attain,
It is hallelujah all the way;
Perfect peace my soul has found,
Earth seems like enchanted ground,
It is hallelujah all the way. [Chorus]
