Song analysis and interpretationEdit

"Walkin' in the Light" is based on 1 John 1:7, which reads "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." The song presents the results and benefits of becoming a born-again Christian, while encouraging others to do the same.

Words and music by Bob Hartman

I'm rockin' with the Rock
Rollin' on the road that takes me to the King
I've been up and down your city
And I wish you could see all the love you need

(Chorus) Walkin' in the light every day and night
Livin' in the Spirit is really out of sight
Walkin' in the light every day and night
Livin' in the Spirit is really out of sight

I know you've given me Your Spirit
Peace in my heart, a new song to sing
I'm giving love to all of my brothers
And I wish you could see all the joy it brings

I'm rockin' with the Rock
Rollin' on the road that takes me to the King
I'm tellin' all my friends about You
And I wish they could see all the love You bring
