Representative Text

1 Above the waves of earthly strife,
Above the ills and cares of life,
Where all is peaceful, bright and fair,
My home is there, my home is there.

Refrain:
My beautiful home, my beautiful home,
In the land where the glorified ever shall roam,
Where angels bright wear crowns of light,
My home is there, my home is there.

2 Away from sorrow, doubt and pain,
Away from worldly loss and gain,
From all temptation, tears and care;
My home is there, my home is there. [Refrain]

3 Beyond the bright and pearly gates,
Where Jesus, loving Savior, waits,
Where all is peaceful, bright and fair;
My home is there, my home is there. [Refrain]
