Representative Text

1 We are wandering home as time glideth by,
And weaveth its garlands of years;
To a beautiful home, and better by far
Than the one in this valley of tears.

Refrain:
Wandering home, wandering home,
Soon we shall wander no more;
And, oh! may we meet each other at last,
At home on “the heavenly shore.”

2 We are wandering home by the same old way
Our fathers before us have trod,
To the shadow of death and the city beyond,
The glorious city of God. [Refrain]

3 We are wandering home o’er a stormy plain,
Replete with temptation and sin,
To a beautiful fold where Jesus awaits
To welcome each wanderer in. [Refrain]

4 We are wandering home, yes, wandering home,
But soon we shall wander no more;
And, oh! may we meet each other at last,
At home on “the heavenly shore.” [Refrain]
