Representative Text

1 There's a beautiful place for you and for me,
We homeless shall be nevermore;
For a mansion prepared by Jesus I see,
And he is the Way and the Door.

Refrain:
Beautiful home! beautiful home!
Singing its story I tell,
O enter, my soul, no longer to roam,
Forever with Jesus to dwell.

2 And I need not look off to find the dear place,
O'er Jordan's dark rolling away;
For he calleth me nigh, and shows me his face,
And bids me be welcome to-day. [Refrain]

3 I shall enter his house and find him, I know,
In doing the will of his word;
In my heavenly home, begun here below,
I'll dwell evermore with my Lord. [Refrain]
