Representative Text

1 Peaceful and beautiful haven of rest,
Home of the purified, joy of the blest;
Home where all sadness forever shall flee,
Haven, bright haven, I long for thee.

Home of the purified,
Bright is thy shore,
Haven of peace when life’s trials are o’er;
Home where the dearest of treasures shall be,
Haven, bright haven, I long for thee.

2 Oft have I dreamed of a mansion so fair,
Oft have I wished I at last might be there;
Here, as afar from my pleasures I roam,
Oft do I sigh when I think of home. [Refrain]

3 All is so marred in this Lost Eden plain,
Marred by the death-blight of sin and of pain;
There in that haven no sorrow shall fall,
Beauty’s bright splendor will shine o’er all. [Refrain]
