Representative Text

1 Like a weary, homeless dove,
To thee, O Lord, I fly;
Glad to rest in thy dear love,
And feel thy presence nigh.

Refrain:
Thou art the home of my heart,
Thou art the home of my heart;
In thee will I rest and forever be blest,
Dear Saviour, the home of my heart,
Dear Saviour, my home.

2 Thou my refuge and my strength,
The Rock where I may hide;
I have come to thee at length,
My heart is satisfied. [Refrain]

3 I have found a dwelling-place,
No longer will I roam;
Thou hast shown me love and grace,
Thou art my heart’s dear home. [Refrain]
