Representative Text

1 I know I am nearing my Father’s home,
That beautiful home so fair,
Which all is so bright, for there is no night,
And I’ll meet with the loved ones there.

Refrain:
In that happy home, that blest happy home,
Where all is so bright and fair,
I’ll sing the glad song, with all the saved
And rest from all pain and care.

2 I know I am nearing the heav’nly goal
His glories I soon shall see,
Sweet praises I’ll sing, to Jesus the King
And from sin I shall then be free. [Refrain]

3 I know I am nearing the portals of light
Its radiance is shining so clear,
I’ll soon reach His side, where naught can betide
And I shall have naught to fear. [Refrain]

4 I know I am nearing the brink of life’s stream,
And though the dark billows may roll,
Still Jesus is near, my faint heat to cheer,
He’ll give peace to my troubled soul. [Refrain]
