1 We are going home to glory,
Bright abode, bright above!
And will gladly work for Jesus,
On the road, on the road.

Refrain:
For his mercy sought and found us,
And his blood to service bound us;
So we’ll work for all around us,
On the road, going home.

2 We will call to those faint hearted,
“Be of cheer, be of cheer;”
And to pilgrims who have started,
“Never fear, never fear.” [Refrain]

3 We will call to souls in blindness,
“Come this way, come this way;”
We will tell Christ’s loving kindness,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day. [Refrain]

4 May our souls with love be yearning
As we sing, as we sing;
May our lamps be brightly burning,
For the King, for the King. [Refrain]

5 We are waiting till his message
Bids us come, bids us come;
But we’ll live and work for Jesus,
Going home, going home. [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
