Scripture Verse

A highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it. Isaiah 35:8

There’s a royal highway leading
To the King’s sublime abode;
And I seek a home in glory,
Walking in that royal road.


O the blessèd royal road,
O the blessèd royal road;
Will you go with me to glory,
Walking in the royal road?

O’er the highway Jesus traveled,
Up the hill of Calvary trod,
That He might a path make open,
Leading to the throne of God.


As I journey o’er the highway
To the country of my king,
Oft by faith I hear the echo
From the land where angels sing.


Oft a glad, entrancing vision
To my spirit is bestowed;
’Tis the city, bright, eternal,
Whither leads the royal road.
