I am on the Gospel highway,
Pressing forward to the goal,
Where for me a rest remaineth
In the homeland of the soul;
Every hour I’m moving onward,
Not a moment to delay;
I am going home to glory
In the good old-fashioned way.

Refrain

In the good old-fashioned way,
In the good old-fashioned way,
I am going home to glory
In the good old-fashioned way.

From the snares of sinful pleasure,
Here my feet are always free;
Tho’ the way may be called narrow,
It is wide enough for me;
It was wide enough for Daniel,
And for David in his day;
I am glad that I can follow
In the good old-fashioned way.

Refrain

Many friends have gone before me,
They have laid their armor down,
With the pilgrims and the martyrs
Have obtained the robe and crown;
On this road they fought their battles,
Shouting victory day by day;
I shall overcome and join them
In the good old-fashioned way.

Refrain

Just a few more steps to follow,
Just a few more days to roam;
But the way grows more delightful
As I’m drawing nearer home;
When the storms of life are over,
And the clouds have rolled away,
I shall find the gates of Heaven,
In the good old-fashioned way.

Refrain

Then palms of victory,
Crowns of glory,
Palms of victory I shall wear.
