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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I love to think of my home above,
In the glorious realms of light;
Of the pearly gates and the golden streets,
In the land where there is no night.

Refrain:
Home, sweet home!
Happy home, sweet home!
Oh, say, will you meet me there,
In that home above,
Where all is love,
And joys beyond compare.

2 I love to think of my home above,
Of that pure and holy clime,
Where the sorrows of earth can never come,
But eternal joys will be mine. [Refrain]

3 I love to think of my home above,
Of the angel forms so bright;
Of the blessed ones there around the throne,
In the land of pure delight [Refrain]

4 Sweetest of all is the tho’t of Him
Who did leave His throne on high,
And did come to this sinful world of ours
To suffer, and bleed, and die. [Refrain]

5 That in that beautiful home above,
I may have a mansion fair;
And my heart is full of joy and praise,
For I know that my treasure is there. [Refrain]
