1 Amid the hours that rapid fly,
Amid the flow’rs that soon must die,
Amid our tears while here we roam,
How sweet the thought we’re going home.

Refrain:
Heavn’ly home! heav’nly home!
We are on our journey home;
Home, home,
How sweet the thought we’re going home.
Heavn’ly home! heav’nly home!
We are on our journey home;
Home, home,
How sweet the thought we’re going home.

2 O! Yes, how sweet, as down life’s stream
Time bears us onward like a dream,
The thought that we shall soon be there,
In all the joys of heav’n to share. [Refrain]

3 We’re going home with saints to be,
Where dwell our friends we long to see,
To join the glorious ransomed band
Which stands in bliss at God’s right hand. [Refrain]

4 How sweet, amid life’s toils and fears,
To know that Jesus always hears;
In darkest night he bids us come,
And all our fears and wants make known. [Refrain]

5 We’ll cling to Jesus in the hour
When Sin and Satan use their pow’r,
And murmur not when sorrows come,
For by and by we’re going home. [Refrain]

6 No dying groans shall then be heard,
And we shall speak no parting word;
O! sinner, to our Saviour come,
And join the band that’s going home. [Refrain]
