Let us sing the sweet song

Representative Text

1 Let us sing the sweet song of that beautiful home,
Of the home far away with the Master;
Where no storms e’er assail, where no tempests prevail,
And no perils bring grief and disaster.

Far away from this vale ‘midst the angels above,
With the saints of the Lord to be singing;
I shall rest with the Lord, there to hear His sweet word,
And glad tokens of praise I’ll be bringing.

2 There my soul in that home with the ransomed shall dwell,
In unchangeable love ere abiding;
There to shine like the stars in their brilliancy bright,
In the bosom of Christ be residing. [Refrain]

3 O this home is for all who will serve the dear Lord,
Sinner, come to Him now all confessing;
O how sweet is the rest of the happy and blest,
And to all who His love are possessing. [Refrain]
