Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: John Cennick, 1743
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Jesus, my all, to heavín is gone,
He whom I fix my hopes upon,
His track I see, and Iíll pursue
The narrow way ítill Him I view.

Chorus:

Iím on my journey home, to the New Jerusalem,
So fare you well, I am going home.

The way the holy prophets went,
The road that leads from banishment,
The Kingís highway of holiness
Iíll go, for all His paths are peace.

(Chorus)
