1 Home to Zion we are bound,
Happy in the love of Jesus,
Peace abiding we have found,
Happy in the love of Jesus.

Refrain:
Happy, happy,
Singing all the way,
Happy all the day;
Happy, happy,
Happy in the love of Jesus.

2 Trusting we will forward go,
Happy in the love of Jesus,
Treading changeful paths below,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 We will sing salvation’s song,
Happy in the love of Jesus,
All our earthly way along,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Soon we’ll reach the homeland fair,
Happy in the love of Jesus,
And shall dwell forever there,
Happy in the love of Jesus. [Refrain]
