1 Not a cloud to hide our sky
When we reach our home;
Never tempest sweeping by
When we reach our home;
Not a wave our bark to toss,
Not a thought of pain or loss,
Crowns of glory after cross
When we reach our home.

Refrain:
When we reach our home,
Restful, happy home,
Over there were the many mansions be,
Bright, eternal home.

2 Never wrong against the right
When we reach our home;
Never sinful hosts to fight
When we reach our home;
With our shining shield and sword
Let us battle for our Lord,
Thinking of the blest reward
When we reach our home. [Refrain]

3 Nevermore a grave appears
When we reach our home;
Wip’d away are sorrow’s tears
When we reach our home;
Not a moan above our dead,
Not a lonely path to tread,
Not a bitter tear to shed
When we reach our home. [Refrain]

4 We will labor, watch and pray
Till we reach our home;
Cling to Christ our hope and stay
Till we reach our home;
All our sorrows meekly bear,
Each with each life’s burdens share,
Thinking of the glory there
When we reach our home. [Refrain]
