44. Marching on to Zion

1 We are children of a King,
Marching on to Zion;
O the songs of joy we sing,
On our journey home;
Will you go with us today,
Marching on to Zion,
Where the King will lead the way,
On our journey home?

Refrain:
Zion, Zion,
Marching on to Zion;
Soon we’ll enter the pearly gate,
Soon we’ll gather home.

2 Toil and danger we shall meet,
Marching on to Zion;
Thorns will pierce our weary feet,
On our journey home;
Yet the King His own will cheer,
Marching on to Zion;
O how oft His words we hear,
On our journey home. [Refrain]

3 True and faithful let us be,
Marching on to Zion,
Till our eyes the King shall see,
On our journey home;
Hark, He bids us watch and wait,
Marching on to Zion;
Till we reach the pearly gates,
On our journey home. [Refrain]
