Lyrics

We are going thro’ life’s journey one by one,
We are going t’wards the evening’s setting sun;
Soon the fleeting days of earth will all be past,
And we’ll stand upon death’s river bank at last.

Refrain

We are going thro’ life’s journey,
Yes, we’re going thro’ life’s journey,
We are going thro’ life’s journey one by one;
We are going thro’ life’s journey,
Yes, we’re going thro’ life’s journey;
We are going thro’ life’s journey one by one.

We are going thro’ life’s journey one by one,
And our labors here below will soon be done;
When the final end doth come to one and all,
Let’s be ready for the heav’nly Shepherd’s call.

Refrain

We are going thro’ life’s journey, but there’s One
Who will never leave His children sad, forlorn;
’Tis the loving Savior, He will be our stay,
And will guide us safely in the narrow way.
