Representative Text

1 Homeless here the soul may rove,
But a mansion waits above,
For the soul that’s redeemed;
Here the way is seldom fair,
Streets of gold are shining there,
For the soul that’s redeemed.

Refrain:
Brighter the way, groweth each day,
For the soul that’s redeemed;
At the bright gate, angels await,
For the soul that’s redeemed.

2 Friends below are few and rare,
Countless friends are waiting there,
For the soul that’s redeemed;
Here the toil each day depressed,
Yonder’s sweet, eternal rest,
For the soul that’s redeemed. [Refrain]

3 In that happy world above
There is peace and there is love,
For the soul that’s redeemed;
And a crown is waiting there,
Decked with gems of beauty rare,
For the soul that’s redeemed. [Refrain]
