I'm On My Journey Home

Representative Text

1 My feet are weary, but I am going
To the fair palace of the king,
To see His beauty and share His glory,
AndHis eternal praises sing.

Chorus:
For I am going home, yes, I am going home,
To yonder city, bright and fair,
To see my Saviour dear, to see my Saviour dear.
And live with Him forever there.

2 Oh, do not hinder me on my journey,
For earth is not my dwelling-place!
I'm going homeward to meet my Saviour,
And see Him ever face to face. [Chorus]

3 A few more sorrows, a few more trials,
A few more burdens here to bear,
And I will enter the heav'nly portals,
And rest in peace forever there. [Chorus]
