280. Beautiful Home

1 There’s a land of delight, where the angels dwell,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
The joy that is waiting no tongue can tell,
Beautiful home above.

Refrain:
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Sweet is my haven of rest;
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Home of the pure and blest.

2 There’s a joy which eternally fills my heart,
Thinking of home, thinking of home;
It wakens the music in every part,
Thinking of Christ above. [Refrain]

3 There’s a peace like the flowing of ocean-tide,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
Where purified saints with the Lord abide,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]

4 There’s a crown with its jewels of sparkling light,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
It is shining far brighter than stars of night,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]
