1 No homeless wanderer am I,
My Father dwells above the sky;
And when His chosen time has come,
He’ll send for me and take me home.

O home of peace and light and love!
My Father’s home! My home above!
Oh haste, thou happy hour, to come
When God shall send and take me home.

2 No lonely home, far off removed
From all the friends I knew and loved
Is mine; for in one house are placed
The many mansions of the blest. [Refrain]

3 Nor shall a stranger’s welcome meet
My tired spirit at the gate;
My Lord Himself in love will come
And give to me a welcome home. [Refrain]

4 And oh, what joy to hear Him say,
Well done, where I am thou shalt be;
Since thou hast conquered, thou shalt have
All things that Jesus has to give. [Refrain]
