Happy are they who trust and obey,
And walk in the King’s highway,
Doing the will of Jesus their Lord,
Assured of a blessèd reward.


Happy are they who walk in this way,
And toil for the Master each day;
He is their priest, their prophet and king,
And gladly His praises they sing.

Happy are they who walk in the light,
That shineth so wondrously bright,
Striving each day more useful to grow,
And more of Christ’s spirit to show.


Happy are they who live for their Lord,
Who treasure His holy Word,
Power divine shall keep them from harm,
Upheld by the Savior’s strong arm.
