1 We’re bound for glory-land on high,
Walking in the King’s highway;
We’ll reach its mansions by and by,
Walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain:
Walking in the King’s highway,
Walking in the King’s highway;
And life is grand and glorious,
Walking in the King’s highway.

2 This is the way our fathers trod,
Walking in the King’s highway;
The way that leads to Heav’n and God,
Walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

3 The lame shall leap, the dumb shall sing,
Walking in the King’s highway;
In desert lands shall burst a spring,
Walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

4 No unclean thing may pass this road,
Walking in the King’s highway;
But burdened souls may here unload,
Walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

5 No lions here, nor raging beast,
Walking in the King’s highway;
But ransomed souls as kings and priests,
Walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]

6 We sing glad songs of joy and peace,
Walking in the King’s highway;
From doubt and fear we’ve found release,
Walking in the King’s highway. [Refrain]
