1 There’s a road that leads to the vale of despair,
A road all enshrouded with worry and care;
Another that leads up to glory and light,
Thank God, we are hitting the home trail tonight.

Refrain:
Hitting the home trail tonight,
Hitting the home trail tonight;
Angels smile on the beautiful sight,
Someone is hitting the home trail tonight.

2 O trail that winds on to the glorious goal,
To Heaven at last, the bright home of the soul;
For some one stands ready to win in the fight,
And someone is hitting the home trail tonight. [Refrain]

3 The trail that leads home is the best way to take,
The path of the wicked we long to forsake;
At the end of the trail there are mansions of light,
For those who are hitting the home trail tonight. [Refrain]
