Thro’ a land of sin and shame,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;
Trusting in the Savior’s name,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home.

Refrain

Traveling home, traveling home,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;
Trav’ling home, traveling home,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;

To a land of peace and rest,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;
Where no soul can be distressed,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home.

Refrain

Joy unceasing we shall share,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;
With the loved ones waiting there,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home.

Refrain

Sorrows will forgotten be,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home;
Over for eternity,
Led by Jesus we are traveling home.
