Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 There’s a home where I’m longing to go
In a land where no sorrow I’ll know,
And God’s bountiful blessings will flow
From His hand, and His love He’ll bestow.
Oh, my home—blessèd home!
Glorious home where my Jesus I’ll see!
Oh, my home—dearest home,
Where His sweet face will smile upon me!
2 Earthly diamonds can never compare
To the riches with Jesus I’ll share,
Where the Sun shines a gleam everywhere,
And the streets paved with gold are so fair. [Refrain]
3 In that home where I some day will be,
The redeemed of the earth I shall see.
They were saved by Christ’s blood on the tree.
I’ll rejoice with them clearly and free! [Refrain]
4 I will see those who went on before—
Dearest family, friends and still more:
Little children, sweet, innocent, pure,
Running, playing, on Heaven’s green shore. [Refrain]
5 Then our Lamb will extend His sweet hand,
And caress little children and stand
In the midst of them, leading their band,
With a smile on His face, through the land. [Refrain]
6 All our tears will He wipe from our eyes,
When to Heaven with Him we shall rise,
Gather all of His jewels as His prize;
Then we’ll sing of His love in the skies! [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #9370
