Trav’ling on the sea of life we’re home­ward bound,
Drifting wrecks and strug­gling souls are all around;
But we do not fear the voy­age, for we know
That the Sav­ior steers us as we on­ward go.


We’re home­ward bound for glo­ry,
Homeward bound for glo­ry,
There we’ll meet with loved ones gone be­fore;
We’re home­ward bound for glo­ry,
Homeward bound for glo­ry;
All the storms of life will soon be o’er.

Jesus guides our storm tossed bark across the seas;
He will bring us safe­ly to the port of peace;
He’s the Pi­lot; He is stand­ing at the helm,
And no ang­ry winds or waves can ov­er­whelm.


Come on board the Gos­pel ves­sel, do not stay,
And we’ll help you as we jour­ney on the way;
Soon to har­bor at our Fa­ther’s blest abode,
We will wor­ship in the ci­ty of our God.
