The Good Old Way Lift up your hearts, Emmanuel's friends, and taste the pleasure Jesus sends Let nothing cause you to delay, but hasten in the good old way For I have a sweet hope of glory in my soul (For I have a sweet hope of glory) I have a sweet hope of glory in my soul (I have a sweet hope of glory) And I know I have, and I feel I have A sweet hope of glory in my soul Our conflicts here, though great they be, shall not prevent our victory If we but strive and watch and pray like soldiers in the good old way Though Satan may his powers employ, our happiness for to destroy Yet never fear, we'll gain the day by marching in the good old way Ye valiant souls, for heaven contend; remember glory is at the end Our God will wipe our tears away when we have run the good old way And far beyond this mortal shore we'll meet with those who have gone before And shout to think we have gained the day by marching in the good old way From the singing of the Watersons -- and of Out of the Rain.
