Representative Text

1 I have two homes, two happy homes,
By God, the Father given;
One precious home is here on earth,
My other home is Heav’n,
My other home is Heav’n.

2 I think upon my earthly home,
And sweet emotions rise,
Yet still my spirit longs to reach
My home above the skies,
My home above the skies.

3 The glories of my home above,
Nor pen, nor tongue may tell,
For none save spirits sanctified
In that bright land may dwell,
In that bright land may dwell.

4 My Father! hear my earnest prayer,
For those I dearly love;
O take us all, when life is o’er,
To our bright home above,
To our bright home above.
