1 There are beams of brilliant sunlight along the holy way,
Where the weary pilgrims travel in the dust;
They are happy as they’re nearing that land of blissful day,
They are walking in the pathway of the just.

Refrain:
They are walking, they are walking,
They are walking in the pathway of the just;
They are walking, they are walking,
They are walking in the pathway of the just.

2 They are walking in the footsteps of Jesus all the time,
For the needed strength and grace in Him they trust;
They are on the way to glory where joys are more sublime,
They are walking in the pathway of the just. [Refrain]

3 They are joyful in temptation because the Lord is near,
Let offences come, for Jesus said they must;
So with sword and shield they conquer without a doubt or fear,
They are walking in the pathway of the just. [Refrain]

4 By the pastures ever green, by refreshing waters free,
Christ will lead them if in Him they fully trust;
To the Father He will say, “These are mine Thou gavest me,
“I have kept them in the pathway of the just.” [Refrain]
