1 There is a beautiful home
Beyond the silent sea,
And oh, that home so bright and fair
My Saviour bought for me.
O wand’rer, far from God,
That home your own may be,
If you will give your heart to Christ
And serve Him serve Him faithfully.

2 There is a beautiful house
To stand eternally,
And oh, that house not made with hands,
My Saviour bought for me.
O wand’rer, far from God,
A mansion yours may be,
If you will give your heart to Christ
And serve Him serve Him faithfully.

3 There is a beautiful robe
As white as white can be,
And oh, that robe so spotless, pure,
My Saviour bought for me.
O wand’rer, far from God,
White raiment yours may be,
If you will give your heart to Christ
And serve Him serve Him faithfully.

4 There is a beautiful crown
To ever fadeless be,
And oh, that wondrous crown of life
My Saviour bought for me.
O wand’rer, far from God,
A crown your own may be,
If you will give your heart to Christ
And serve Him serve Him faithfully.

5 These beautiful gifts of love
That wait beyond the sea,
My Saviour purchased with His blood
On cross of Calvary.
O wand’rer, far from God,
This wealth your own may be,
If you will give your heart to Christ
And oh, ‘tis free! and oh, ‘tis free!
