Our Other Home

Representative Text

1 It lies beyond earth’s vision,
Beyond the starry sky,
Beyond the radiant sunset
We’ll reach it by and by.

Our home, sweet home,
Our home, sweet home,
Beyond the starry sky;
Our home, sweet home,
Our happy home,
We’ll reach it by and by.

2 ’Tis in a golden city
Fair city of the blest,
Within its walls of jasper
Earth’s weary toilers rest. [Refrain]

3 The tree of life is growing
In rich luxuriance there;
The stream of life is flowing,
So crystalline and fair. [Refrain]

4 Bright crowns of life are waiting
In mansions far above,
There golden harps are tuning
The sweetest songs of love. [Refrain]

5 There will be every treasure
Our hearts on earth may share;
Then with what blissful pleasure
Shall we enjoy them there. [Refrain]
