1 We’re on our way to glory land,
Glory land, glory land;
We’re on our way to glory land,
A happy, happy band.

Refrain:
O come and join our band today,
O come and join our band today,
And journey with us all the way to glory land.
We’re on our way to glory land,
Glory land, glory land;
We’re on our way to glory land,
A happy, happy band.

2 We’ll work for Jesus all the way,
All the way, all the way;
We’ll work for Jesus all the way,
Yes, all along the way. [Refrain]

3 The narrow way is fair and bright,
Fair and bright, fair and bright;
The narrow way is fair and bright,
To walk therein is right. [Refrain]

4 Come, help us sing our Savior’s praise,
Sing His praise, sing His praise,
Yes, help us sing our Savior’s praise,
The blessed Savior’s praise. [Refrain]
