We’re just travelers from the city where love dwells,
On a mission of mercy to the world.
We’re just here to tell the story
Of the Savior and His glory,
About the streets of gold and gates of pearl.
Today we light a candle in the corners that are darkened.
Today we tell the world about his love.
Tomorrow He will gather all the saved of earth together,
Forever to live with Him above.
Well, I’ve see many places of beauty.
And cities that are made of steel and stone.
But they’re not everlasting, and so many folks are passing;
It makes me so glad I’m headed home.
