Representative Text

1 Patiently bearing our trouble and sorrow,
Strengthened by Him who is watching above,
Cheered by the hope of a brighter tomorrow,
Onward we go to the homeland we love.

Refrain:
Soon we shall enter the city supernal,
Walk with the Savior, its glittering ways.
Rest in the light of His glory eternal,
And with the angels sing anthems of praise.

2 Sharing the burdens of those who are weary,
Strengthening daily love’s comforting bond,
Whether the pathway is sunny or dreary,
Onward we go to the city beyond. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ we may falter when tempests o’ertake us,
And though our spirits grow sad in the gloom,
Never, oh, never our faith will forsake us,
Jesus our Savior is guiding us home. [Refrain]
