1 How often you think of your home,
Of the days gone by,
Of those who have passed from your view,
To a better home on high.

Refrain:
Will the circle in heaven be broken by you, by you?
The Saviour the message has spoken,
And sinner, it is true.
He’s gone to prepare you a mansion in heaven so fair,
But if you repent not, O sinner,
You cannot enter there;
Will you not come,
Will you not come?
Let not the circle be broken
Of loved ones at home.

2 That mother who taught you to pray,
You cannot forget;
She’s watching today for her child,
And is praying for you yet. [Refrain]

3 The circle you knew upon earth,
Cannot perfect be;
Until you shall enter the gate,
That is open now for thee. [Refrain]

4 And greater than all of the rest;
Is your Saviour’s love
He died on the cross for your soul,
And is waiting you above. [Refrain]
