We are pilgrims of a day Homeward




We are pilgrims of a day,
Homeward bound, homeward bound;
Singing on our cheerful way,
We are homeward bound.

Onward, upward still,
O ye hopeful pilgrims;
Forward, fear no ill,
yonder is our home;
We journey, hand in hand,
To Canaanís happy land;
O come, ye friends and neighbors,
And join the pilgrim band.



We are happy in the Lord,
Travíling on, travíling on;
Trusting in His holy Word,
We are travíling on.

Onward, upward still,
O ye hopeful pilgrims;
Forward, fear no ill,
yonder is our home;
We journey, hand in hand,
To Canaanís happy land;
O come, ye friends and neighbors,
And join the pilgrim band.



Sin and sorrow here below,
Soon will end, soon will end;
In the land to which we go,
Toil and care will end.

Onward, upward still,
O ye hopeful pilgrims;
Forward, fear no ill,
yonder is our home;
We journey, hand in hand,
To Canaanís happy land;
O come, ye friends and neighbors,
And join the pilgrim band.



Working all the way along,
Rest will come, rest will come;
Lighten work with prayír and song,
BlessŤd rest will come.

Onward, upward still,
O ye hopeful pilgrims;
Forward, fear no ill,
yonder is our home;
We journey, hand in hand,
To Canaanís happy land;
O come, ye friends and neighbors,
And join the pilgrim band.
