1 My heav’nly home is bright and fair,
I long to be there.
No pain nor death can enter there.
I long to be there.

Refrain:
Oh, angels, guide me home,
Angels, guide me home,
Angels, guide me home,
I long to be there.

2 My Father’s house is built on high;
I long to be there.
Far, far above the starry sky.
I long to be there. [Refrain]

3 Its glitt’ring tow’rs the sun outshine;
I long to be there.
That heav’nly mansion shall be mine.
I long to be there. [Refrain]
