Representative Text

1 In my Father’s house are mansions fair
For the sons of earth who gather there;
Far beyond the reach of pain and care,
Is there a mansion for me?

Refrain:
Beautiful mansion fair, over there
Over there, over there, over there over there,
Beautiful mansion fair, over there
Over there, over there, over there over there.

2 When the angel reapers from on high
Gather in the sheaves that scattered lie,
Who among the number then will cry,
Is there a mansion for me? [Refrain]

3 Weary, heavy laden, there is room,
In my Father’s house a welcome home;
Hear the Saviour calling, Sinner, come!
Yes, there’s a mansion for thee. [Refrain]
