Safe at Home

Representative Text

1 There are the glorified,
Home, safe at home!
There they shall e’er abive—
Home, safe at home!
Out of their stress of care
Lifted by angels fair;
Sheltered forever there,
Home, safe at home!

2 There are the loved and lost,
Home, safe at home!
Ne’er to be grieved or crossed—
Home, safe at home!
Safe from the shade of fears,
Safe from the chill of tears,
Safe thru eternal years,—
Home, safe at home!

3 There I shall rest at last,
Home, safe at home!
All the long journey past—
Home, safe at home!
Safe from the tempter’s charm,
Safe from the dread of harm,
Safe on my Saviour’s arm—
Home, safe at home!
