Lyrics

Verse 1
Since I started for the City over in the Promised Land,
I have trials and temptations ev’ry day;
But I find myself supported by a strong and loving hand,
For I have the Savior with me all the way.

Chorus
All the way, all the way,
For I have the Savior with me all the way;
All the way, all the way,
For I have the Savior with me all the way.

Verse 2
There are many snares and pitfalls all along the pilgrim road,
I can overcome them if I watch and pray.
In the hour of pain and sorrow, grace sufficient is bestowed,
For I have the Savior with me all the way.

Verse 3
When the clouds of darkness gather and the sunshine all has fled,
Then he guides my falt’ring footsteps lest I stray;
And the blessed light of Heaven over all my path is spread,
For I have the Savior with me all the way.

Verse 4
When I reach the silent river, with its cold and chilling tide,
Jesus will be there, my Helper and my Stay.
I will sail away triumphant, land my soul on Canaan’s side,
For I have the Savior with me all the way.
