Representative Text

1 In my Father’s dwelling above,
There’s a robe and a crown for me;
I shall enter thro’ the gates of glory there,
And the King in His beauty see.

O the rapture, O the rapture,
When I reach my Father’s dwelling bright and fair!
O the rapture, O the rapture,
When the King shall receive me there.

2 In my Father’s dwelling above,
O the bliss that remains for me!
I shall tell of my Redeemer and His love,
I shall sing of His grace so free. [Refrain]

3 In my Father’s dwelling above,
When the cares of the world shall cease,
I shall join the happy chorus of the blest,
In a land of delight and peace. [Refrain]

4 In my Father’s dwelling above,
With the friends that have gone before,
We shall meet beyond the river by and by,
There to praise Him forevermore. [Refrain]
