HOMEWARD BOUND

HOMEWARD BOUND

Out on an ocean all boundless we ride,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound;
Tossed on the waves of a rough restless tide,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound;
Far from the safe, quiet harbour we rode,
Seeking our Father's celestial abode,
Promise of which on us each he bestowed;
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.

Wildly the storm sweeps us on as it roars,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound;
Look, yonder lie the bright heavenly shores,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound;
Steady, oh?pilot, stand firm at the wheel,
Steady, we soon shall outweather the gale:
Oh, how we fly 'neath the loud creaking sail,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.

Into the harbour of heaven now we glide,
We're home at last, home at last;
Softly we drift on its soft silver tide,
We're home at last, home at last,
Glory to God, all our dangers are o'er;
We stand secure on the glorified shore;
Glory to God, we will shout evermore;
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.
