1 There’s a bright home on high,
We shall see by and by,
Where no darkness nor shadow will be;
For God’s glory will shine
With a brightness divine;
That bright home is for you and for me.

What a wonderful place,
We shall see by His grace,
With its mansions and streets paved with gold;
In that bright home above
We shall rest in His love,
While the years of eternity roll.

2 There the streets, we are told,
All are glittering gold,
White robed angels are singing God’s praise;
And the saints catch the strain,
Make it echo again,
Mighty chorus of triumph they raise. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how sweet it will be,
When those bright lights we see,
Greeting dear ones who’ve gone on before;
We will fall at His feet
And His praises repeat,
Blessèd Savior we’ll love and adore. [Refrain]
