Full Text

1 A mansion is waiting in glory,
My Savior has gone to prepare;
The ransomed who shine in its beauty,
Will dwell in that city so fair.

Refrain:
Oh, home above,
I’m going to dwell in that home;
Oh, home of love,
Get ready, poor sinner, and come.

2 A mansion of rest for the weary,
Who toil in the vineyard of love;
O sinner, believe, and be ready
To enter that mansion above. [Refrain]

3 A mansion where heavenly music
Enraptures the glorified throng;
They’re singing salvation, O sinner,
Come, join in that beautiful song. [Refrain]

4 A mansion where angels are waiting
To welcome the holy and true,
And when to the Savior low kneeling,
They’ll sing a sweet anthem for you. [Refrain]

5 A mansion unclouded by sorrow,
Undimmed by the pains of farewell,
Where all of earth’s pilgrims will gather,
With Christ in His glory to dwell. [Refrain]
