Representative Text

1 Heav'nly home! heav'nly home! precious name to me!
I love to think the time will come when I shall rest in thee.
I've no abiding city here,
I seek for one to come;
And though my pilgrimage be drear,
I know there's rest at home.

Will you go with me the joys to see,
Of that home above where all is love,
That heav'nly home above?

2 Heav'nly home! heav'nly home! there no clouds arise,
No tear-drops fall, no dark nights dim thy ever smiling skies.
This earthly home is fair and bright,
Yet clouds will often come;
And, oh, I long to see the light
That gilds my heav'nly home. [Chorus]

3 Heav'nly home! heav'nly home! ne'er shall sorrow's gloom,
Nor doubts nor fears, disturb me there, for all is peace at home.
I know I ne'er shall worthy be,
To dwell 'neath heaven's bright dome;
But Christ, my Saviour, died for me,
And soon he'll call me home. [Chorus]
