If I walk in the pathway of duty
If I work till the close of the day
I shall see the great king in his beauty
When I've gone the last mile of the way.

When I've gone the last mile of the way
I will rest at the close of the day
And I know there are joys that await me
When I've gone the last mile of the way.

--- Instrumental ---

And if here I have earnestly striven
And have tried in his will to obey
Twill enhance all the rapture of heaven
When I've gone the last mile of the way.

When I've gone the last mile of the way
I will rest at the close of the day
And I know there are joys that await me
When I've gone the last mile of the way...
