I’m on my way unto the home
That Christ prepares for me;
No pain or sorrow there can come,
Each soul is glad and free.
I’m on my way,
To that bright land above;
With Christ for aye
To dwell in peace and love.
Through grace divine steadfast I’ll stand,
Though tempted day by day;
I’ll hold to God’s unchanging hand,
And keep the narrow way.
I’m on my way, and how I long
That all my friends may go
With me to sing the glad, new song,
And joys eternal know!
