Representative Text

1 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
In the Saviour we are strong;
He directs us on our journey,
Fills our hearts with love and song.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Hallelujah gladly sing;
We are going, we are going
To the palace of a King.

2 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Drawing nearer every day,
To a mansion bright with glory
That shall never fade away. [Refrain]

3 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Tho’ our hearts are oft oppressed;
Jesus kindly bears our burdens,
Gives the weary spirit rest. [Refrain]

4 Trav’ling homeward, trav’ling homeward,
Our Redeemer’s love to share;
We shall see Him in His kingdom,
We shall dwell forever there. [Refrain]
