1 We’re walking in the light,
We’re battling for the right,
We are keeping in the strait and narrow way,
Christ Jesus is our King,
His praise our lips shall sing
While walking in the middle of the royal way.

The royal way
Will never lead astray;
From sin and pride
O turn aside
And walk the narrow way;
With Jesus as our Friend
We’ll reach our journey’s end
By walking in the middle of the royal way.

2 With Jesus for our guide
We’ll never turn aside,
We will never leave the bright and shining way;
It leads to heav’n, our home
Where Jesus bids us come:
We’ll keep within the middle of the royal way. [Chorus]

3 In Christ let us rejoice
With cheerful heart and voice,
For the path is growing brighter ev’ry day;
And soon we’ll reach our home,
Where Jesus bids us come:
Till then we’ll keep the middle of the royal way. [Chorus]
