Representative Text

1 We are pilgrims on the road
Leading to the land of God,
Only for a little while on earth we stay;
And tho’ bitter trials come,
As we journey to our home,
There’ll be triumph at the ending of the way.

Refrain:
At the ending of the way,
At the ending of the way,
For us waits eternal joy,
At the ending of the way.

2 Often dear ones at our side
Pass before us o’er the tide,
And with tears a sad farewell to them we say;
But where partings are unknown
We again shall claim our own,
They will meet us at the ending of the way. [Refrain]

3 As we sing of saving grace
Oft we long to see the face
Of the blessed One who ransomed us for aye;
In a glory none hath told
Jesus we shall soon behold,
He will meet us at the ending of the way. [Refrain]
