Trav’ling on the sea of life we’re homeward bound,
Drifting wrecks and struggling souls are all around;
But we do not fear the voyage, for we know
That the Sav­ior steers us as we onward go.


We’re homeward bound for glo­ry,
Homeward bound for glo­ry,
There we’ll meet with loved ones gone before;
We’re homeward bound for glo­ry,
Homeward bound for glo­ry;
All the storms of life will soon be o’er.

Jesus guides our storm tossed bark across the seas;
He will bring us safely to the port of peace;
He’s the Pilot; He is standing at the helm,
And no angry winds or waves can overwhelm.


Come on board the Gos­pel vessel, do not stay,
And we’ll help you as we journey on the way;
Soon to harbor at our Fa­ther’s blest abode,
We will worship in the city of our God.
