1 Jerusalem, my happy home,
When shall I come to thee?
When shall my sorrows have an end?
Thy joys when shall I see?
2 O happy harbor of the saints,
O sweet and pleasant soil!
In thee no sorrow may be found,
No grief, no care, no toil.
3 Thy gardens and thy gallant walks
Continually are green;
There grow such sweet and pleasant flow'rs
As nowhere else are seen.
4 There trees forevermore bear fruit
And evermore do spring;
There evermore the angels sit
And evermore do sing.
5 Jerusalem, my happy home,
Would God I were in thee!
Would God my woes were at an end,
Thy joys that I might see!

Jerusalem, my happy home, p. 580, i. A translation of the manuscript text of F. B. P., by G. S. Hodges, is given in his The County Palatine, &c, 1876, as, “O domus, Hierusalem! beata." Note also:—
1. The F. B. P. text is divided in the People's Hymnal
1867, the Hymns of Faith, N. Y., 1887, and others, into two parts. Pt. ii. begins "Ah, my sweet home, Jerusalem."
2. From the Boden and Williams text, 1801, stanzas i.-iv. are given in The Canadian Baptist Hymnal, 1889, as "Jerusalem, my glorious home."
3. See also two letters in the Literary Churchman, July 20 and Aug. 3, 1883.
