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.

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]
