1 My home is in the heavenly land,
Where angels bright and fair,
Before the throne of glory stand,
And crowns of vict’ry wear,
And while I labor to secure
A blissful home above,
I have a treasure rich and sure,
‘Tis found in Jesus’ love.

Oh, home, sweet home, so bright and fair,
Oh, happy angels over there,
With them my joy shall be complete,
While resting at the Saviour’s feet.

2 Oft while I journey here below,
Amid the busy throng,
I hear a voice and seem to know
The singer and the song;
For with my pray’r the soft refrain
In holy sweetness blends;
And while I listen to the strain,
A blissful calm descends. [Refrain]
