Representative Text

1 Savior, thy word a lamp shall be,
Guiding my feet in the narrow way;
Lighting the path that leads to thee,
Up to the realms of endless day.

Traveling home, traveling home,
Going wherever my Savior may lead,
Traveling home, traveling home,
Up to the mansions prepared for me.

2 When I am weak and tempted here,
Journeying on to sweet Eden’s land;
Savior, I know, I feel thee near,
Lead thou me on, hold thou my hand. [Refrain]

3 Savior, I tread the heav’nly road,
Looking by faith to my home above;
Soon shall I reach the blest abode,
Where all is peace and joy and love. [Refrain]
