Representative Text

1 Uplift every valley, the sunlight to share;
Bring low every mountain by faith’s conqu’ring pray’r;
For service so blessed, your best efforts bring,
To souls that need Jesus, make paths for the King.

Refrain:
Make paths for the King!
Till earth with his praises shall ring;
Make paths for the King!
O Christian, make paths for the King!

2 More lab’rers are wanted, the work is so great;
With courage and kindness, things crooked make straight;
Let love’s crystal fountains abundantly spring
Far out in the desert; make paths for the King. [Refrain]

3 Seek out the rough places, and smooth them with love;
Use sympathy, patience and pow’r from above;
Remember life’s seasons pass by on the wing,
The Master is coming! make paths for the King. [Refrain]
