1 We’re marching on to heav’n above,
Will you go? Will you go?
To sing the Saviour’s dying love—
Will you go? Will you go?
Millions have reach'd that blissful shore,
Their trials and their labours o'er,
And yet there's room for millions more—
Will you go? Will you go?

2 The way to heav'n is strait, but plain,
Will you come? Will you come?
Repent, believe, be born again,
Will you come? Will you come?
Christ offers pardon free to all,
Who will accept His loving call,
And at His feet repentant fall—
Will you come? Will you come?

3 How blessed 'tis to serve Him here!
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Redeem'd from ev'ry doubt and fear,
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!
Tho' tribulation cross our way,
Affliction or adversity,
Yet Jesus saves us ev'ry day,
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

4 And when our day of fighting's o'er;
Home at last! Home at last!
We'll praise Him on the other shore,
Home at last! Home at last!
We'll join again in songs of praise
With those who see the Master's face,
And ever sing redeeming grace—
Home at last! Home at last!
