1 We are on our journey home,
For we seek the rest to come,
And by faith the walls of Zion now we see;
There beyond the swelling tide,
We shall with the saved abide,
Through the ages of eternity.

Refrain:
Will you come and journey with us to the New Jerusalem?
Will you dwell in yon bright city over on the other shore?
Will you come and journey with us to the New Jerusalem?
Where with joy we’ll shout hosanna evermore?

2 We are pressing day by day,
Onward in our pilgrim way,
While this world’s alluring scenes around us lie,
But we prize not things of time,
For we seek a fairer clime,
Where no shadows ever dim the sky. [Refrain]

3 Will you strive to gain the goal,
Waiting for each pardoned soul,
By the sacred blood of Jesus cleansed from sin?
Turning from earth’s empty dross,
In the pathway by the cross,
Will you journey till the crown you win? [Refrain]
