1. I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger,     I’m traveling through this world of woe; Yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger,     In that bright land to which I go. I’m going there to see my father,     I’m going there no more to roam; I’m only going over Jordan,     I’m only going over home. 2. I […]

1. There is a house in heaven built,     The temple of the living God, The tabernacle true, where guilt     Is washed away by precious blood. 2.

1. Time now is closing, Jesus will come;     Signs are fulfilling, earth’s pillars groan: Hark! Hear the trumpet, calling come home—     See earth reeling to her final doom. 2.

Refrain We’re going home!     Shake off your sad dejection. We’re going home!     To live in sweet perfection. 1. O, how I long to see that day,     When the redeem’d shall come To Zion clad in white array—     Their blissful happy home. Refrain 2. To hear the hallelujah’s roll     From the unnumber’d throng: The kingdom spread […]
