Nearer Home

Representative Text

1 Nearer to that happy home
Where my Father's mansions rise,
Nearer to the great white throne,
In the land beyond the skies.

Nearer home, nearer home,
I am nearer home,
I am one day's journey nearer home,
Than e'er I was before.
I am one day's journey nearer home,
Than e'er before.

2 Nearer home, yes, nearer home
Than I e'er have been before,
Nearer to that world of light,
Nearer to the shining shore. [Chorus]

3 Nearer to my glory home,
One day gained upon the way,
Nearer to that radiant life,
And the long eternal day. [Chorus]
