1On our way rejoicing, as we homeward move,
Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!
Is there grief or sadness? Thine it cannot be!
Is our sky beclouded? Clouds are not from Thee!
On our way rejoicing, as we homeward move,
Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!
2If with honest-hearted love for God and man,
Day by day Thou find us doing what we can,
Thou who giv’st the seedtime wilt give large increase,
Crown the head with blessings, fill the heart with peace,
On our way rejoicing, as we homeward move,
Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!
3On our way rejoicing gladly let us go;
Conquered hath our Leader, vanquished is our foe!
Christ without, our safety, Christ within, our joy:
Who, if we be faithful, can our hope destroy?
On our way rejoicing, as we homeward move,
Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love!
4Unto God the Father joyful songs we sing;
Unto God the Savior thankful hearts we bring;
Unto God the Spirit bow we and adore,
On our way rejoicing now and evermore!
On our way rejoicing, as we homeward move,
Hearken to our praises, O Thou God of love! Amen.
