Representative Text

1 My heav’nly home is bright and fair,
I feel like traveling on,
Nor pain, nor death can enter there,
I feel like traveling on.

Chorus:
Yes, I feel like traveling on,
I feel like traveling on;
My heav’nly home is bright and fair,
I feel like traveling on.

2 Its glitt’ring tow’rs the sun outshine,
I feel like traveling on,
That heav’nly mansion shall be mine,
I feel like traveling on. [Chorus]

3 Let others seek a home below,
I feel like traveling on,
Which flames devour, or waves o’erflow,
I feel like traveling on. [Chorus]

4 The Lord has been so good to me,
I feel like traveling on,
Until that blessed home I see,
I feel like traveling on. [Chorus]
