1 Home at last, thy labor done,
Safe and blest, the victory won;
Jordan passed, from sin set free,
Angels now have welcomed thee.
Depth of mercy, oh, how sweet,
Thus to rest at Jesus’ feet,
In yon world of light afar,
Safe within "the gate’s ajar!"
2 When dark waves were beating hard
Thy frail bark on Jordan’s flood,
Thou didst sing so glad and free,
"Yes, the gate’s ajar for me." [Refrain]
3 One short day of joy below,
Such as pardoned sinners know,
Then away on wings of love,
To thy home prepared above. [Refrain]
4 When earth’s songs have all been sung,
Labor ended, trials done,
"We’ll meet again," oh, happy word!
And be "for ever with the Lord." [Refrain]
