O who will come and go with me,
I am on my journey home;
Iím bound fair Canaanís land to see,
I am on my journey home.

Chorus:

O come and go with me,
For Iím on my journey home.

Farewell, vain world, Iím going home,
I am on my journey home;
My Savior smiles and bids me come,
I am on my journey home.

(Chorus)

Sweet angels beckon me away,
I am on my journey home;
To sing Godís praise in endless day,
I am on my journey home.

(Chorus)
