Representative Text

1 By the way of the Cross we’re going,—
Home to the Land above;
We will fear not the hosts of evil,—
Kept by a Father’s love.

Refrain:
Home, home, home,—
Home to the Land above,
By the way of the Cross we’re going,—
Home to the Land above.

2 By the way of the Cross we’re going;
Jesus has gone before;
We will follow our Master’s footsteps
Home to the golden shore! [Refrain]

3 By the way of the Cross we’re going,—
Rough tho’ the path may be;
There’s a hand that will guide us safely,
Home, blessed Lord, to Thee! [Refrain]
