O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Children of the heav'nly King!
As we journey let us sing;
Sing our Saviour's worthy praise,
Glorious in His works and ways.

We are trav'ling home to God,
In the way our fathers trod;
They are happy now, and we
Soon their happiness shall see.

Fear not, brethren, joyful stand
On the borders of our land;
Jesus Christ, our Father's Son,
Bids us undismayed go on.

Lord! obediently we'll go,
Gladly leaving all below;
Only Thou our Leader be,
And we still will follow Thee.

Chorus:
We are trav'ling homeward, we are trav'ling homeward,
We are trav'ling homeward to the land beyond the skies;
We are trav'ling homeward, we are trav'ling homeward,
Homeward to the land beyond the skies.
