Representative Text

1 Life’s closing hours pass sweetly by,
Earth’s pains are felt no more;
To heav’n I now direct mine eye
To view the shining shore.

Refrain:
Homeward, homeward,
Home to the shining shore;
Homeward, homeward,
Home to the shining shore.

2 With trials and with conflicts past,
And record placed on high,
By faith I see the crown at last,
And vict’ry drawing nigh. [Refrain]

3 The parting veil reveals the tide,
Where on the margin wait
My friends redeemed, the glorified,
To sweep me through the gate. [Refrain]

4 As Nature sinks in Death’s embrace,
So will my spirit rise
Triumphant through redeeming grace,
To rest in Paradise. [Refrain]
