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.

Refrain:
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]
