Representative Text

1 There’s a home of many mansions in the Father’s house above,
That our Savior is preparing for the children of His love;
So my heart knows not despairing, tho’ in sorrow oft I roam,
Gleaming from the many mansions, I can see the lights of home.

Refrain:
I can see the lights of home,
I can see the lights of home,
Gleaming from the many mansions, I can see the lights of home.
I can see the lights of home
Far across the billows’ foam,
Gleaming from the many mansions, I can see the lights of home.

2 When the storms of life are raging, doubts and fears my soul assail,
His “Let not your heart be troubled,” I can hear above the gale;
So with face turned ever homeward, while the billows dash and foam,
Gleaming from the many mansions, I can see the lights of home. [Refrain]

3 When the shades of night are falling, and my loved ones have passed on,
And I’m waiting glad, expectant, waiting for the heav’nly dawn,
Brighter, brighter, ever brighter, till the angels for me come,
Gleaming from the many mansions, I can see the lights of home. [Refrain]

Coda:
Home, home, sweet, sweet home,
I’ll soon be with Jesus, I’ll soon be at home.
