Entering through the door of hope
We enter into the Shepherd's sheepfold
Placing us on His path of righteousness
Welcome to the highway of holiness
Instructed not to look to the left or to the right
Keeping our gaze only upon the prize
Jesus, the single focus of our eye
Deep ditches lie to the sides of this great path
Warning us to keep balance to stay on track
Only by His mercy and grace
Have we been beckoned unto this place
This place they call the "King's Highway"
The same road the King traveled ~ we traverse today
This is the trail for kings and priests
Called to belong to the King of kings
Bearing garments of humility
Until the day unveiled before His majesty
Learning to walk just like Him
Empowered and embraced by His Spirit within
Facing every trial and test
Upon the highway of holiness
Pressing on toward that celestial city beyond our dimension
Giving it all our energy and full attention
Filled with joy, wonder, and praise
The closer we come to the Ancient of Days
