74. Jesus Has Promised Me

1 Jesus has promised me a home in heav’n,
Safe with the loved ones in his mansion fair;
O ‘twill be sweet when earthly ties are riv’n,
Resting with Jesus over there.

Refrain:
Home in my Father’s kingdom fair,
Home that my Saviour will prepare;
Home, where the blessed angels are,
Jesus has promised me over there.

2 Jesus has promised me a crown of gold,
When by and by I join the ransomed throng;
Then shall I taste the joys of heav’n untold,
Then shall I sing the glad New Song. [Refrain]

3 Jesus has promised me a robe of white,
Washed in the blood that flowed on Calvary;
O I shall praise him in that world of light,
When to my home he beckons me. [Refrain]

4 Jesus has promised me eternal life,
There in the Home-land, on the golden shore,
I shall be done with all the pain and strife,
Safe with my Lord forevermore. [Refrain]
