We're On The Homeward Trail

Representative Text

WE are marching up the hillside and the trail leads home;
We are marching up the hillside and the winding trail leads home;
Yes, sometimes we’re finding that the trail is a-winding,
But we don’t mind, no we don’t mind, for the trail leads home.

Refrain:
We’re on the homeward trail, we’re on the homeward trail,
Singing as we go, going home.
We’re on the homeward trail, we’re on the homeward trail,
Singing, singing, singing, singing, going home.

2 We are marching on our journey and the trail leads home;
We are marching on our journey and the winding trail leads home;
Jesus’ feet were bleeding when he took the trail that’s leading
To the homeland, to the homeland, for the trail leads home.

3 By and by we’ll strike the valley but the trail leads home;
‘Tis the shadow of the valley but the winding trail leads home;
Jesus will be with me when I’m walking through the valley,
Through the valley, through the valley, for the trail leads home.
