1 There’s a guiding star and it cheers the soul,
On its journey home to the heav’nly goal,
And it lights the way over mountains steep,
And the valleys dark and the waters deep.

Refrain:
O the star shines bright o’er the rugged way,
We shall reach the goal by its guiding ray,
And our loved ones gone are awaiting there,
At the pearly gates of the home so fair.

2 “Many mansions” there by the Lord prepared,
And He beckons on to the saints reward,
He has left His word, as a guiding star,
To the pilgrim’s rest in the land afar. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas a mother’s love and a father’s pray’r,
That inclined our feet to the narrow way,
And we found the light in the path we trod,
So we journey on to a home with God. [Refrain]
