LYRIC:

The blacksmith’s shop on Parley Street 

Those boys ain’t got a wink of sleep this week 

Hundreds of wagons, people shiverin’ 

Sitting on go clear down to the river 

Listen prophet, Israel calls 

Just like Joshua you face those walls 

Steam rolls high off the oxen’s back 

Brigham waves them on as he straightens his hat 

 

Well there’s children out there following mothers 

Sisters walking next to brothers 

Fathers keeping those wagons goin’ 

Everybody’s got faith they know 

You’ll take my people home

Take my people home

Fare thee well, Oh Joshua 

 

They’re no strangers to sore trials 

The last three years have been a burning fire 

They buried their Joseph next to Hyrum 

In a secret grave while the Saints stood cryin’ 

You finished that temple high above town 

And heaven’s light fell like rain coming down 

Believing somewhere they’ll find Zion 

Eyes fixed firmly on The Lion 

Well there’s children out there following mothers 

Sisters walking next to brothers 

Fathers keeping those wagons goin’ 

Everybody’s got faith they know 

You’ll take my people home 

Take my people home

Take my people home

Fare thee well, Oh Joshua

Well there’s children out there following mothers 

Sisters walking next to brothers 

Fathers keeping those wagons goin’ 

Everybody’s got faith they know 

Well there’s children out there following mothers 

Sisters walking next to brothers 

Fathers keeping those wagons goin’ 

Everybody’s got faith they know 

You’ll take my people home

Take my people home

Take my people home
