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.
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]
