Traveling Homeward

Verse 1:
Children of the heavenly King!
As we , let journey, let us sing;
Sing our Saviour’s worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.

Refrain:
We are trav’ling homeward, we are trav’ling homeward,
We are trav’ling homeward to the land beyond the skies;
We are trav’ling homeward, we are trav’ling homeward,
Homeward to the land beyond the skies.

Verse 2:
We are trav’ling home to God,
In the way our fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.

Verse 3:
Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of our land;
Jesus Christ, our Father’s Son,
Bids us undismay’d go on.

Verse 4:
Lord! obediently we’ll go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only thou our leader be,
And we still will follow thee.

John Cennick/Ira D. Sankey
