Wherever You May Be Whatever You May See


Our God will guide us right, and, walking in the light,
We shall win a crown of glory on that day,
When Jesus calls His own, together round the throne,
Who keep along the middle of the King’s highway.

Refrain:
The King’s highway! the king’s highway!
Oh, turn aside from ev’rything that leads astray!
Our God will guide us right, and walking in the light,
We’ll keep along the middle of the King’s highway.

Wherever you may be, whatever you may see
That would lead you into evil, say you “Nay!
I will not turn aside, whatever may betide:
I’ll keep along the middle of the King’s highway. [Refrain]

The meadows may be green where “bye-path stile” is seen:
“Turn aside!” the little flowers seem to say,
Be sure you give no heed, they’re trying to mislead;
Just keep along the middle of the King’s highway. [Refrain]

For, on enchanted ground, there’s danger all around
And a thousand pleasant voices bid you stay,
With fingers stop your ears, and never mind their jeers;
Just keep along the middle of the King’s highway. [Refrain]
