Full Text

Refrain:
It's a highway to heaven,
none can walk up there but the pure in heart.
It's a highway to heaven,
I am walking up the King's Highway.

1 My way gets brighter, my load gets lighter
Walking up the King's Highway.
There's joy in knowing with Him I'm going,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]

2 Don't have to worry, don't have to hurry
Walking up the King's Highway.
Christ walks beside me, angels to guide me,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]

3 If you're not walking, start while I'm talking
Walking up the King's Highway.
There'll be a blessing you'll be possessing,
Walking up the King's Highway. [Refrain]
