84. Singing as We Journey to Zion

1 We'll watch and pray and labor ev'ry day,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
Till He shall come to call His children home,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Looking to our Lord, trusting in His word,
Marching when He bids us go forward;
By His strong hand we'll pass the Canaan land,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

2 With Christ as guide no evil can betide,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
We'll trust His grace till we behold His face,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Love withing our heart bids all fear depart,
Winning other souls for the Master;
He's always near our pilgrim way to cheer,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

3 With shield and sword we'll battle for the Lord,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
We'll trust our King us victory to bring,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Striving for the right, putting foes to flight,
Following our Guide where He leads us;
By His great might we'll conquer in the fight,
Singing as we journey to Zion.

4 The vict'ry won, we'll glorify the Son,
Singing as we journey to Zion,
The "blood-wash'd throng" will welcome us ere long,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
Ready! be our cry, when the Lord is night,
Calling us to lay down our armor;
Our warfare, past we'll gather home at last,
Singing as we journey to Zion.
