"Homeward Bound" as written by and Jerry Landis....
1.
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 harbor we've rode,
Seeking our Father's celestial abode,
Promise of which on us each he bestowed;
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.

2.
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, O 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.

3.
We'll tell the world as we journey along,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.
Try to persuade them to enter our throng,
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.
Come trembling sinner, forlorn and opprest,
Join in our number, Oh come and be blest;
Journey with us to the mansions of rest:
We're homeward bound, homeward bound.

4.
Into the harbor of heaven we glide,
We're home at last; home at last!
Softly we drift on its bright 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 home at last; home at last.
