We're on the Way

Full 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.

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]
