1 Trav’lers to a better land,
On we go, on we go;
There we’ll join the blood-wash’d band,
Onward let us go;
Here we have not long to stay,
On we go, on we go,
Jesus Christ has led the way,
Onward let us go.

2 Trials there shall be no more,
On we go, on we go;
Perfect rest forevermore,
Onward let us go;
Here we often meet defeat,
On we go, on we go,
There we’ll sit at Jesus feet,
Onward let us go.

3 Earthly joys shall pass away,
On we go, on we go;
Earthly treasures shall decay,
Onward let us go;
Hearts that here were sometimes sad,
On we go, on we go,
Shall be there forever glad,
Onward let us go.

4 Dearest friends have gone before,
On we go, on we go;
Others, now are passing o’er,
Onward let us go;
When at last we cross death’s sea,
On we go, on we go,
Glorified we then shall be,
Onward let us go.
