Have you heard of it?

I put our worship slides together and one of the songs in them sat itself down in my head. It stuck rather hard so at work I found myself humming and half singing it. The thing is that I just couldn’t get a verse so I asked one of my co-worker to help me out. Much to my amazement she had never ever heard the song. I then began to ask anyone that would listen if they had heard of it. One man sang it for me. Way too cool when they do that. He also knew how to play it on his harmonica. It would have been the greatest had he done that for me. Pastor said he had heard it but didn’t know it well. He’s one of my new favorite guys to come in. I was surprised at those who hadn’t heard of the song. I loved that one man said that he could tell that I was a Christian because of my attitude. I could see that he was also one because of his smile and how cool he was with our craziness tonight.


Do you know this song?
Was I the only one who heard this growing up?



The Gloryland Way
Words and Music by J.S. Torbett

I'm in the way, the bright and shining way,
I'm in the gloryland way;
Telling the world that Jesus saves today,
Yes I'm in the gloryland way.
I'm in the gloryland way,
I'm in the gloryland way;
Heaven is nearer and the way groweth clearer,
For I'm in the gloryland way.
List to the call, the gospel call today,
Get in the gloryland way;
Wand'rers, come home,
O hasten to obey,
And get in the gloryland way.
I'm in the gloryland way,
I'm in the gloryland way;
Heaven is nearer and the way groweth clearer,
For I'm in the gloryland way.
Onward I go rejoicing in His love,
I'm in the gloryland way;
Soon I shall see Him in that home above,
O, I'm in the gloryland way.
I'm in the gloryland way,I'm in the gloryland way;
Heaven is nearer and the way groweth clearer,
For I'm in the glory land way.

Yep. We sang in my TX church often. Now I'm singing it, too. How fun getting someone to sing it at work!

Don't know it.

Heard it and sang it most of my life, not lately in church though, may be to old fashion not enough parts to highlight special voices.

Laymond, I see your twin brother is posting again. :)

My Grandfather was an elder/song leader, and seldom missed an opportunity to include this song in his list.

This would be a good song to get stuck in your head; better than my old Mr. Sandman that drives me crazy.

Worse yet, lately a tune has grabbed my meager mind when I'm busy called...I Don't Like It, But I Guess Things Happen That Way; an old Johnny Cash tune I think, and I don't have the slightest idea why!

Heard it and we sing it pretty regularly in our church here in Ohio.

I've heard of it and we sing it often. It is one of those songs that grabs you and won't let you go... and that's a good thing! :)

Yep, I sang that one growing up in the CofC. It's been a while though.

Since Sunday though, I've had this one stuck in my head.
