We are traveling to a better land—
One by one we’ll all be gathered home,
And we’ll trust the Savior’s guiding hand:
One by one we’ll all be gathered home.

Refrain

Gathering, gathering,
One by one we’ll all be gathered home;
Gathering, gathering,
One by one we’ll all be gathered home;

We are drawing nearer every day—
One by one we’ll all be gathered home—
To that joy that fadeth not away:
One by one we’ll all be gathered home.

Refrain

There we’ll meet our loved ones gone before—
One by one we’ll all be gathered home,
And we’ll dwell with Jesus evermore:
One by one we’ll all be gathered home.

Refrain

Come, my brother, join the happy throng—
One by one we’ll all be gathered home—
Singing now redemption’s holy song:
One by one we’ll all be gathered home.
