Representative Text

1. My soul exults with praise and love,
Because my Lord hath said to me—
Within My Father’s house above
I have prepared a place for thee.

O court of bliss! O mansion fair!
Where I the King Himself shall see,
And crowned with joys beyond compare
Shall dwell with Him eternally.

2. His blood hath sealed my deathless right
To that blest home beyond the sea;
My portion with the saints in light,
The place He hath prepared for me. [Refrain]

3. It is not far—that home of mine,
That mansion by the cloudless sea;
Each morn its portals brighter shine,
Each eve it nearer comes to me. [Refrain]

4. A gladsome dawn at last shall bring
My bark across the crystal tide.
And I shall greet my Savior king
And in my Father’s house abide. [Refrain]
