I Walk with the King
Words by James Rowe
Music by B.D. Ackley

2 Corinthians 5:7
"For we walk by faith, not by sight:"

divider

          In sorrow I wandered, my spirit oppressed,
          But now I am happy - securely I rest;
          From morning till ev'ning glad carols I sing,
          And this is the reason:  I walk with the King.

            Chorus
            I walk with the king, hallelujah!
            I walk with the King, praise His name!
            No longer I roam, my soul faces home,
            I walk and I talk with the King.

          For years in the feters of sin I was bound,
          The world could not help me - no comfort I found;
          But now like the birds and the sunbeams of spring.
          I'm free and rejoicing - I walk with the King.

            Chorus
            I walk with the king, hallelujah!
            I walk with the King, praise His name!
            No longer I roam, my soul faces home,
            I walk and I talk with the King.

          O soul near despair in the lowlands of strife,
          Look up and let Jesus come into your life;
          The joy of salvation to you He would bring;
          Come into the sunlight and walk with the King.

            Chorus
            I walk with the king, hallelujah!
            I walk with the King, praise His name!
            No longer I roam, my sould faces home,
            I walk and I talk with the King.
