Representative Text

1 Homeward I go rejoicing!
O lovely promised land!
Far in the distance gleaming
I see thy shining strand.

Homeward! to join the ransomed,
Beyond the borders of the crystal sea;
Homeward! to joys eternal,
And O how sweet the rest will be!

2 Homeward to meet the Savior
On that eternal shore;
Wonderful land of Canaan,
Where sorrows come no more. [Refrain]

3 Homeward I go believing
That there shall be no night
In that eternal city,
Where God himself is light. [Refrain]
