Lyrics

While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus,
Secure from ev­ery storm that blows,
I’m kept in per­fect peace from all my foes,
While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus.

Refrain

Walking in the way with Je­sus,
Walking in the way with Je­sus,
I’m kept in per­fect peace, my joys in­crease,
While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus.

While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus,
I bid fare­well to all my fears;
A bow of pro­mise glows above my tears,
While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus.

Refrain

While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus,
I hear His Come to Me and rest;
And, look­ing un­to Him, my soul is blest,
While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus.

Refrain

While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus,
I see my heav’n­ly home afar;
I see the pear­ly gates for me ajar,
While walk­ing in the way with Je­sus.
