1 Awhile I must labor for Jesus below,
And then at His bidding from earth I shall go,
The joy of His presence forever to know,
At home in the city eternal.

Refrain:
In the beautiful city, where streets are of gold,
To share with redeemed ones a rapture untold;
The face of my Savior I soon shall behold,
At home in the city eternal.

2 Tho’ darkly above me the storm-clouds may roll,
And trials and changes oft threaten my soul,
I’m looking in faith to the glorious goal,
At home in the city eternal. [Refrain]

3 At last, when my journey in this world is o’er,
When conflict with sin need be waged nevermore,
With victors I’ll stand on the heavenly shore,
At home in the city eternal. [Refrain]

4 Where sweetest of music thro’ ages shall ring,
Rejoicing in mercy divine I shall sing
A glad song of praise to my Savior and King,
At home in the city eternal. [Refrain]
