1 Ah! this heart shall cease its longing,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Where no anxious cares are thronging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Now a heavy burden presses,
And I walk thro’ thorny places,
Till my weary wand’ring ceases,
Safe at home! safe at home!

2 There I’ll see no tempest raging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Sin no warfare wild is waging,
Safe at home! safe at home!
When shall come the blissful waking,
Where no painful head is aching,
Where no throbbing heart is breaking,
Safe at home! safe at home!

3 There are friends who with me parted,
Safe at home! safe at home!
No more wand’ring broken hearted,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Undisturb’d while storms are sweeping,
Calmly now the loved are sleeping,
Ever in their Father’s keeping,
Safe at home! safe at home!

4 Dear ones gone before will meet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
At the pearly gate will greet me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
Saviour, dearest Saviour, hear me,
I am weary, be Thou near me,
Oh, sustain me till Thou cheer me,
Safe at home! safe at home!
