1 There is a home, a peaceful home,
A home of joy and love,
And they that bear the cross below,
Shall wear the crown above.

Refrain:
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Beautiful home of love,
And they that bear the cross below,
Shall wear the crown above.

2 No night shall dim that glorious home,
For Jesus is the light;
And mourning pilgrims here below.
Shall there be clad in white. [Refrain]

3 With palms of victory in their hands
They with the ransomed sing,
“All praise to Him who wash’d us white,
Our Saviour, God and king.” [Refrain]
