Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful home for the children of God,
Just beyond the border line,
Where none but the pure thro’ the ages have trod;
Will that home be yours and mine?

Refrain:
Will that home be yours and mine,
That sweet happy home divine?
Are we cleansed in the blood of the dear Lamb of God,
Will that home be yours and mine?

2 In that wonderful home there is never a tear,
None e’er sorrow there nor pine;
When done with the care of life’s wearisome year,
Will that home be yours and mine? [Refrain]

3 In that glorified home is a beautiful song,
Jesus’ love the theme divine,
The crucified Lamb to whom praises belong;
Will that home be yours and mine? [Refrain]

4 In that sweet happy home where our God is the light,
Like the stars, redeemed ones shine,
With names written down on that page pure and white;
Will that home be yours and mine? [Refrain]
