1 There’s a beautiful place,
Called the home of the soul,
Where with Jesus some day I shall be;
When I reach that bright home,
‘Mid its pleasures to roam,
O say, shall I share it with thee?
O say, shall I share it with thee?

Refrain:
Beautiful home, bright and fair,
Loved ones are waiting over there;
They would rejoice if they know you would share,
That beautiful, beautiful home.

2 There the water of life,
Like a river flows on,
To the beautiful bright jasper sea;
There’s a palace most fair,
Waiting me over there,
O say, is one waiting for thee?
O say, is one waiting for thee? [Refrain]

3 Day unending prevails,
In that beautiful home,
And its pleasures unfailing shall be;
We shall dwell in God’s sight,
Filled with endless delight,
O say, are its pleasures for thee?
O say, are its pleasures for thee? [Refrain]

4When at last we shall meet
In that home of the soul,
With the loved ones so happy and free;
And the Lord looking down,
Gives to each one a crown,
O say, will there be one for thee?
O say, will there be one for thee? [Refrain]
