Home at Last

Representative Text

1. Home at last on heav’nly mountains,
Heard the Come and enter in;
Saved by life’s fair flowing fountains,
Saved from earthly taint and sin.

Home, sweet home, our home forever;
All the pilgrim journey past;
Welcomed home to wander never,
Saved through Jesus—Home at last.

2. Free at last from all temptation,
No more need of watchful care;
Joyful in complete salvation,
Giv’n the victor’s crown to wear. [Refrain]

3. Saved to greet on hills of glory
Loved ones we have missed so long;
Saved to tell the sinner’s story,
Saved to sing redemption’s song. [Refrain]

4. Welcomed at the pearly portal,
Ever more a welcome guest;
Welcomed to the life immortal,
In the mansions of the blest. [Refrain]

AUTUMN (Barthélemon)

This tune is adapted from Barthélemon's piece Durandarte and Belerma: A Pathetic Scotch Ballad (1797). Some editors describe AUTUMN as "adapted from Psalm xlii in the Genevan Psalter, 1551", referring to the similarity between this tune and FREU DICH SEHR.
