We're on the Way

Representative Text

1 The promised land! by faith I see,
Where God's own glory gilds the day,
Where we shall dwell with Christ redeem'd,
By His own grace we're on the way.

Chorus:
We're on the way, we're on the way,
To glory-land we're on the way;
We follow Jesus day by day,
He leads us all along the way

2 The promised land! where thousands dwell,
Who've washed their robes in Jesus' blood,
With them we'll wave the branch of palm,
When we have cross'd the narrow flood. [Chorus]

3 The promised land! with gates of pearl,
Ajar for all the blood-wash'd throng,
A few more marches—hold on faith!
And then we'll sing Redemption's song. [Chorus]

4 The promised land! with mansions fair,
Where Jesus now prepares a place,
From whence He'll come to take us home,
And we shall see Him face to face. [Chorus]

5 The promised land! the Father's house
Awaits us on the shining shore,
When there we'll strike our harps of gold,
And praise His name for evermore. [Chorus]
