Representative Text

1 We are marching homeward with the blest,
To that bright world above,
Where our friends are gone and are at rest,
In that world of light and love.

Marching home, we’re marching home,
Happy home of peace and love;
Marching home, we’re marching home,
To that bright land of love.

2 Jesus stands and beckons to us now,
When falt’ring on the way;
He will save us, if to Him we bow,
He who rules both night and day. [Refrain]

3 Our dear Saviour has prepared the way,
Where all who will may come;
If we serve Him truly day by day,
He at last will bring us home. [Refrain]
