1. A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more storm clouds dreary,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more days the cross to bear,
And then with Christ a crown to wear;
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home!

Refrain
O’er time’s rapid river,
soon we’ll rest forever;
No more marchings weary
when we gather home!

2. A few more nights of weeping,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more watches keeping,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more vict’ries over sin,
A few more sheaves to gather in,
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home! [Refrain]

3. A few more sweet links broken,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more kind words spoken,
then we’ll gather home!
A few more partings on the strand,
And then away to Canaan’s land:
A few more marchings weary,
then we’ll gather home! [Refrain]
