Representative Text

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.

3 Beyond the bright and pearly gates,
Where Jesus, loving Saviour, waits,
Where all is peaceful, bright and fair,
My home is there, my home is there.
