The homeland beyond

Full Text

1 There’s a homeland, beyond life’s wide sea,
Where the ransomed forever shall be;
In that home, bright and fair,
There’s no pain, grief, nor care;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee.

Refrain:
There’s a place in that homeland for you,
There’s a place in that homeland for me;
When the journey is o’er,
And we reach that fair shore,
In the homeland forever we’ll be.

2 To that homeland no sorrow can come;
In that homeland no weeping is known;
Loved ones, parted, shall meet;
Life forever be sweet;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee. [Refrain]

3 From that homeland none ever shall stray;
Ships shall never go sailing away;
There is love, home and rest
On the dear Saviour’s breast;
Blessed homeland, I’m longing for thee. [Refrain]
