We are traveling on life’s journey
Happy on the upward way;
Soon we’ll reach the gates of glory
Leading to eternal day.
We are going home to glory,
’Tis the Christ who bids us come;
Just beyond the crystal river,
Waits a bright, eternal home.
Though the road be steep and stony,
On we toil through cold or heat;
We will keep in step with Jesus,
Till we rest our weary feet.
We are going home to Jesus,
When our race on earth is run;
Heaven’s glory will grow brighter,
When has set life’s sinking sun.
