Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

I Have a Home

Representative Text

1 I have a home prepared for me,
A mansion bright across the sea;
And when I pass to yon bright shore,
I’ll dwell with Christ forevermore.

I’ll live for Him till life shall end,
Then on my pinions I’ll ascend
To that bright home, where all is fair,
And take my starry crown to wear.

2 I have a home in heav’n above,
Where all is pure and perfect love;
A home where sin can never be,
Where all is perfect purity. [Refrain]

3 I have a home, forever free
From toil, and care, and misery,
Where stormy seas can never roll,
Where bliss eternal crowns the soul. [Refrain]

4 I have a home—how sweet to know
’Tis well secured from every foe—
Where peace and joy do reign supreme,
Where love shall be my only theme. [Refrain]
