We Are Wandering Home As The Time Glidet


We are wandering home as time glideth by,
And weaveth its garlands of years;
To a beautiful home, and better by far
Than the one in this valley of tears.

Refrain:
Wandering home, wandering home,
Soon we shall wander no more;
And, oh! may we meet each other at last,
At home on “the heavenly shore.”

We are wandering home by the same old way
Our fathers before us have trod,
To the shadow of death and the city beyond,
The glorious city of God. [Refrain]

We are wandering home o’er a stormy plain,
Replete with temptation and sin,
To a beautiful fold where Jesus awaits
To welcome each wanderer in. [Refrain]

We are wandering home, yes, wandering home,
But soon we shall wander no more;
And, oh! may we meet each other at last,
At home on “the heavenly shore.” [Refrain]
