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.

Refrain:
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]
