Representative Text

1. Thro’ a land of sin and shame,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;
Trusting in the Savior’s name,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home.

Refrain
Trav’ling home, trav’ling home,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;
Trav’ling home, trav’ling home,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;

2. To a land of peace and rest,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;
Where no soul can be distressed,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home. [Refrain]

3. Joy unceasing we shall share,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;
With the loved ones waiting there,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home. [Refrain]

4. Sorrows will forgotten be,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home;
Over for eternity,
Led by Jesus we are trav’ling home. [Refrain]

After attending a revival meeting by Reuben Torrey and Charles M. Alexander, Harkness became Alexander’s pianist. He came to Christ shortly thereafter (on a bicycle, he said), and made several round the world tours with Torrey and Alexander. Harkness was especially well known for his program The Music of the Cross, and as the author of correspondence courses in hymn playing. He wrote over 2,000 hymns and Gospel songs in his lifetime.
