Representative Text

1 Far from my home,
Far from my home,
Visions I see of a land that is fair;
Still must I roam,
Still must I roam,
When shall I wake and behold the glory there?
When shall I wake and behold the glory there?

Refrain:
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Beautiful home, ever blest, forever blest;
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Beautiful home of peace and heavenly rest.

2 Wait we for day,
Wait we for day,
Soon shall the sun in its grandeur arise;
Then shall we say,
Then shall we say,
Welcome with joy our bright mansions in the skies,
Welcome with joy our bright mansions in the skies. [Refrain]
