We are sailing o’er the surging tide
To a home where joys ne’er die;
Trusting Jesus only as our guide,
We shall reach it by and by.
Sailing home! we’re sailing home;
By and by we’ll anchor there;
Sailing home! we’re sailing home!
Life’s unfading crown to wear.
We are sailing to that happy shore
Where is felt no grief nor pain;
Meeting there our loved ones gone before,
We shall never part again.
Sailing home, we swiftly onward sweep,
Cheered by Heaven’s beacon light;
Jesus guides us safely o’er the deep,
To that haven calm and bright.
