Representative Text

1 Far beyond the strife of this earthly life,
There’s a home prepared for us above;
And some blessèd day we’ll go there to stay,
Evermore to sing of Jesus’ love.

Refrain:
When we get home,
No more we’ll wander, no more roam,
But peace complete and rapture sweet
We’ll share when we get home.

2 In that home so sweet with its joys complete,
We shall find the rest for which we sigh;
Sing redemption’s song with the blood washed throng,
When we reach that city by and by. [Refrain]

3 Just inside the gate, where our loved ones wait,
Jesus our dear Savior we shall see;
Look upon His face, praise Him for His grace,
O how sweet ’twill be to you and me. [Refrain]
