1 We are going forth on a journey long,
But we cheer our way with a pilgrim song;
“With our Father’s hand leading night and day,
We are going home in the Good Old Way.”

Refrain:
‘Tis our Father’s way, by the prophets trod;
‘Tis a joyful way, and it leads us unto God;
“With our Father’s hand leading night and day,
Weare going home in the Good Old Way.”

2 We shall meet with sin on our journey home,
We shall feel the waves of affliction come;
But our loving Guide will our strength renew,
And will walk with us all the journey thro’. [Refrain]

3 When the journey ends at the shining strand,
And our eyes shall look on that far off land;
How our hearts will thrill as with joy we say,
“What a blessed path was that Good Old Way.” [Refrain]
