Tune: [There is love, true love, in the heavenly home]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There is love, true love, in the heav'nly home,
Many dear ones there have gone,
To be free from care, here no more to roam,
They have joined that happy throng.

There is love, there is rest, there is peace, there is joy,
In that land of song, where the loved have gone,
There is love, rest, peace and joy.

2 There is rest, sweet rest, in the home of God;
'Tis the rest that Christ doth give,
To the souls who trust in his precious blood,
They forevermore shall live. [Chorus]

3 There is peace, sweet peace, in the home above;
For we'll know no heartbreaks there;
Sorrow ne'er shall come, 'tis a home of love,
Of that peace we all may share. [Chorus]

4 There is joy, glad joy, in the land of song,
For in heav'n we all shall sing;
We are nearing home soon to join the throng,
In the presence of our King. [Chorus]
