Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Lo we are journeying home to God

Lo we are journeying home to God

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lo! we are journey'ng home to God,
Bid by the spirit come;
And in the way his children trod,
We seek our Father's home.

2 We walk a narrow path, and rough,
And we are tir'd and weak;
And we shall soon have rest enough,
In those bless'd courts we seek.

3 Nigh to the country we appear,
Stor'd with eternal bliss;
We know we quickly shall be there,
In sight our city is.

4 Upon Mount Zion's distant tip,
A Lamb, our eyes behold;
'Tis Jesus, look ye children up,
He calls us to his fold.

5 We see him with his raiment red,
As tho' besmear'd with blood,
As newly slain he stands; he bled,
Us to redeem to God.

6 About him clad with snowy vests,
Appears a countless throng;
These are his saints, his kings, his priests,
Who sing th' eternal song.

7 How blest, how more than happy these,
Who thus their Lord attend;
We, brethren, in their hosts shall praise,
We soon shall there ascend.
