Heavenly mansions

Representative Text

1 In the house of my Father above,
There are mansions provided for me,
Where my soul in the fulness of joy shall awake
From its body of sin, to be free.

I shall go to that home by and by,
And my Saviour will welcome me there:
He will crown me with life, he will fill me with joy,
And his garment of love I shall wear.

2 When I weary of labor and toil,
And with sorrow my heart is oppressed,
Then my Saviour comes near, and I think with delight
Of the beautiful mansions of rest. [Refrain]

3 I have friends in those mansions above;
They are waiting me now on the shore;
And I know we shall meet at the portals of light,
When a few fleeting days shall be o'er. [Refrain]
