"Sailing Toward Home" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"Sailing Toward Home"

I stood upon the sandy banks
Looking out across the ocean
I watched the ships come safely in
To rest beside the shore
The friends of those aboard her
Were gathered there to meet them
It made me long for Heaven
Where friends will part no more

I'm sailing toward home
On the old ship of Zion
I see the lights upon the banks
Across the misty foam
Angels guard my vessel
'Til I'm safe within the harbor
Captain guide my ship 'til I get home

Mama sailed the seas of life
And knew the storms I'd weather
She told me of a Savior that would chart my destiny
The misty veil has lifted
I plainly see the harbor
And Mama standing on the bank
To smile and welcome me
