1 I’m on my way to Glory!
The land of light above,
There I’ll repeat the story
Of Christ’s redeeming love;
I’ll join with saints and angels
To celebrate his fame,
And thro’ eternal ages
His praises I’ll proclaim,

Refrain:
Singing, Glory! singing, Glory!
I am on my way to Zion, singing, Glory!

2 I’m on my way to heaven,
The place of joy and rest,
Where perfect peace is given
To ev’ry troubled breast;
The cross no longer bearing,
I’ll lay my burden down,
With bliss and honor wearing
A bright, unfading crown, [Refrain]

3 I’m on my way to Zion,
The city built on high,
Jerusalem the joyous,
Beyond the lofty sky;
I’ll pass its shining portal,
Its splendor I’ll behold,
Partake of life immortal,
And walk its streets of gold, [Refrain]
