I am in the heavenly way
Travelin 'long from day to day
And I'll say the weary load
Oh this joy, I'm movin' on

REFRAIN: Oh these joys, the joys, the joy
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Happy and I'll sing this song
So I can have that throne
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home

Day by day, oh there I see
Heavenly things unfold to me,
Make my faith, it'll be more strong
Oh these joys, I'm movin' on

REFRAIN: Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Happy and I'll sing this song
So I can have that throne
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home

Day by day, oh there I see
Heavenly things unfold to me,
Make my faith, it'll be more strong
Oh these joys, I'm movin' on

REFRAIN: Oh these joys, the joy, the joys,
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Happy and I'll sing this song
So I can have that throne
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home

And at last, when labor is done,
And a crown in heaven is won,
I will sing the wonderful song,
Oh these joys, I'm movin' on

REFRAIN: Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home
Happy and I'll sing this song
So I can have that throne
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home

REFRAIN: Oh these joys, the joys, the joy,
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Of goin' home. (SPOKEN: Pick it!)
Joys, great joys
Of goin' home
Oh these joys, great joy,
Oh --
