Lyrics

Walking with God, walk­ing with God;
Higher His ways than the hea­vens are,
Far, far away from earth’s vain care,
Walking, walk­ing with God.

Refrain

Walking with God by night and day;
Walking with God the star­ry way;
Walking with Him eter­nal­ly,
Walking, walk­ing with God.

Walking with God, walk­ing with God,
Out of at­tract­ions of earth com­plete,
Sheltered and loved in His re­treat,
Walking, walk­ing with God.

Refrain

Walking with God, walk­ing with God,
Far, far above earth’s clouds and storms,
Where no­thing comes that hurts or harms,
Walking, walk­ing with God.

Refrain
