Representative Text

1 I’ve left the way of death and sin,
The road that many travel in;
And if you ask the reason why,
I seek a glorious home on high.

Chorus:
This world, this world is not my home,
This world, this world is not my home,
This world is not my resting place,
This world, this world is not my home.

2 Tho’ many would my progress stay,
And beg me not to watch and pray;
I dare not listen to their cry;
I seek a glorious home on high. [Chorus]

3 O sinner, come and go with me,
And seek this land of liberty;
O, do not stay, but tell me why
You do not seek this home on high. [Chorus]
