Lyrics

We shall see the desert as the rose,
Walking in the King’s highway;
There’ll be singing where salvation goes,
Walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain

There’s a highway there and a way,
Where sorrow shall flee away;
And the light shines bright as the day,
Walking in the King’s highway.

We shall see the glory of the Lord,
Walking in the King’s highway;
And behold the beauty of His Word,
Walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain

There the rain shall come upon the ground,
Walking in the King’s highway;
And the springs of water will be found,
Walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain

There no ravenous beast shall make afraid,
Walking in the King’s highway;
For the purified the way was made,
Walking in the King’s highway.

Refrain

No unclean things shall pass o’er here,
Walking in the King’s highway;
But the ransomed ones without a fear,
Walking in the King’s highway.
