77. Gathering Home

1 Up to the bountiful Giver of life,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up to the dwelling where cometh no strife,
The dear ones are gathering home.

Chorus:
Gathering home! gathering home!
Never to sorrow more, never to roam;
Gathering home! gathering home!
God's children are gathering home.

2 Up to the city where falleth no night,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up where the Saviour's own face is the light,
The dear ones are gathering home.
[Chorus]

3 Up to the beautiful mansions above,--
Gathering home! gathering home!
Safe in the arms of his infinite love,
The dear ones are gathering home.
[Chorus]
