H. J. Zelley

WALKING in sunlight, all of my journey,

Over the mountains, through the deep vale;

Jesus has said, “I’ll never forsake thee,”

Promise divine that never can fail.

Heavenly sunlight, heavenly sunlight,

Flooding my soul with glory divine;

Hallelujah! I am rejoicing,

Singing His praises, Jesus is mine.


Shadows around me, shadows above me,

Never conceal my Saviour and Guide;

He is the Light, in Him is no darkness;

Ever I’m walking close to His side.


In the bright sunlight, ever rejoicing,

Pressing my way to mansions above;

Singing His praises, gladly I’m walking,

Walking in sunlight, sunlight of love.
