Representative Text

1 Oh, when shall I dwell in a mansion all bright,
And Jesus, my Savior, behold?
Or walk by His side, like an angel of light,
In a city all garnished with gold?

Refrain:
Home of the blest, home of the blest!
When wilt thou ever be mine?
Home of the blest, home of the blest!
Soon shalt thou ever be mine.

2 No pearl from the ocean or gold from the mine
Can pardon or purity buy:
I’ll trust in the blood of a Savior divine,
And cling to the cross till I die. [Refrain]

3 But while I’m a stranger, away from my home,
I’ll toil in the vineyard and pray;
I’ll carry the cross, while I think of the crown,
And watch for the break of the day. [Refrain]
