1 Have you heard of that heavenly home,
Just beyond the rough wilds there we roam.
Where the angels of light,
And the saints robed in white,
Lift their voices in song ‘round the throne?

Where Jesus is waiting for me,
Where Jesus is waiting for me,
In those mansions so fair
He has gone to prepare,
Where Jesus is waiting for me.

2 How I long for that beautiful home,
Just beyond the dark vale and the tomb!
For my loved ones are there
In those palaces fair,
They are waiting for me by the throne. [Refrain]

3 I will welcome the dawn of the day,
When the trumpet shall call me away
To my sweet, peaceful rest,
In the home of the blest,
In the light of that radiant throne. [Refrain]
