Representative Text

1 Let others seek a home below,
We'll be gathered home;
Which flames devour or waves o'erthrow,
We'll be gathered there.

Chorus:
We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
We'll work till Jesus comes,
And we'll be gathered home.

2 Be mine the happier lot to own,
We'll be gathered home;
A heavenly mansion near the throne,
We'll be gathered home. [Chorus]

3 Then, fail this earth, let stars decline,
We'll be gathered home;
And sun and moon refuse to shine,
We'll be gathered home. [Chorus]

4 Though desolation here may be,
We'll be gathered home;
That heavenly mansion stands for me,
We'll be gathered home. [Chorus]
