1 Happy home coming of our king;
We’ll meet our loved ones gone before,
And sweet the greeting they will bring
To us upon the golden shore.

Happy home coming,
Blessèd home coming,
Glorious home coming of our Savior, King!
Happy home coming,
Blessèd home coming,
Glorious home coming of our Savior, King!

2 Blessèd home coming of our king;
We’ll join the everlasting psalm
Of joy that angel voices sing,
"The song of Moses and the Lamb." [Refrain]

3 Glorious home coming of our king;
With Jesus we will live alway
Where songs of love and gladness ring
In tune thro’ Heav’n’s eternal day. [Refrain]
