72. Toiling Up the Way

1 We are toiling up the way,
Narrow way, narrow way;
We have journeyed many a day
T'ward the Kingdom;
T'ward the distant shining land,
Golden land, golden land,
Where the heavenly harpers stand,
In the Kingdom.

Chorus:
Still we sing, Christ our King
Walks with us the weary way,
And the shining angels wait,
Angels wait, angels wait,
To unbar the golden gate
Of the Kingdom.
[Chorus]

3 We shall gather home at last,
Sorrow past, sorrow past,
We shall hold our jewels fast
In the Kingdom;
We shall dwell in perfect light,
Holy light, holy light,
Never dimmed by tears at night,
In the Kingdom.
[Chorus]
