Representative Text

1 In my Father’s house are mansions,
Many mansions for the blest;
Where the Lord will gladly welcome
All that seek the promised rest.

’Mong the mansions o’er the river,
There is one for me I know;
By and by to live forever,
To that mansion I will go.

2 Hear the promise of the Savior,
“I’ll prepare a place for you;”
We’ll receive the blessed favor,
Take the home all bright and new. [Refrain]

3 In that place of endless beauty,
There are many treasures rare,
Gathered on the way of duty,
To be cherished over there. [Refrain]

4 In that happy home supernal,
In that land beyond the tide,
We shall meet to live eternal,
With our loved ones at our side. [Refrain]
