35. At Home With Jesus

1 Our heav’nly habitation
Above the tempest stands,
Where breezes of salvation
Flow o’er Immanuel’s lands;
And there, when toil is done,
And peace with vict’ry won,
The dawn shall meet life’s setting sun,
At home, at home with Jesus.

At home with Jesus,
At home with Jesus,
There’s a joy and peace forevermore,
At home, at home with Jesus.

2 Tho’ here the storms are swelling
And floods of sorrow foam,
We know we have a dwelling,
A sure abiding home;
The Saviour’s loving breast
Was pierced to make that rest;
O seek this refuge, ye distressed,
And be at home with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 His arms of strength shall hold thee
Above the tempter’s snare,
His shadow sweet enfold thee
Amid the furnace glare.
Pass joyful on thy way,
And in each trial say,
“His presence is my hope and stay,
At home, at home with Jesus.” [Refrain]

4 Across death’s rolling river
True friends have gone before;
We miss them here forever,
We’ll find them on life’s shore.
And glad each voice shall blend,
When friend shall welcome friend,
And ceaseless songs of praise ascend,
At home, at home with Jesus. [Refrain]
