Representative Text

1 There is a home of wondrous beauty,
Lovely and bright;
Built by our blessèd, loving Savior,
Hid from our mortal sight.

Refrain:
Oh, my heart is fondly yearning,
Yonder courts to roam;
Gladly each moment draws me nearer
To my eternal home.

2 This home is one of bliss immortal;
Happy we’ll be,
When walking thro’ the streets of glory,
From every care set free. [Refrain]

3 There in that land of song and beauty,
All Heaven rings
With praises to our blest Redeemer,
Savior, and King of kings. [Refrain]

5 Jesus is daily calling loved ones
Home one by one;
We, too, shall cross the mystic river,
When all our work is done. [Refrain]
