Not Made with Hands

Representative Text

1 I know this earthly house shall fall,
But on that golden strand
I have a bright and blissful home,
A house not made with hands.

Refrain:
I’ve a house not made with hands,
I’ve a house not made with hands,
I’ve a house not made with hands;
I’ve a house not made with hands,
Over on that golden strand,
I’ve a house not made with hands.

2 There peace and joy fore’er shall stay,
And there, so fair, there stands,
Where shines one bright eternal day,
My house not made with hands. [Refrain]

3 No pain or sorrow e’er shall come,
We’ll clasp no parting hands,
And death shall never blight that home,
My house not made with hands. [Refrain]

4 And when this earthly house shall fall
I’ll answer God’s commands,
And find my home forevermore,
A house not made with hands. [Refrain]
