369. I Have a Home

1 I have a home prepared for me,
A mansion bright across the sea;
And when I pass to yon bright shore,
I’ll dwell with Christ forevermore.

Refrain:
I’ll live for Him till life shall end,
Then on my pinions I’ll ascend
To that bright home, where all is fair,
And take my starry crown to wear.

2 I have a home in heav’n above,
Where all is pure and perfect love;
A home where sin can never be,
Where all is perfect purity. [Refrain]

3 I have a home, forever free
From toil, and care, and misery,
Where stormy seas can never roll,
Where bliss eternal crowns the soul. [Refrain]

4 I have a home—how sweet to know
’Tis well secured from every foe—
Where peace and joy do reign supreme,
Where love shall be my only theme. [Refrain]
