Hymnary Friends,

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.

Beautiful Home

Representative Text

1 There’s a land of delight, where the angels dwell,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
The joy that is waiting no tongue can tell,
Beautiful home above.

Refrain:
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Sweet is my haven of rest;
Beautiful home, beautiful home,
Home of the pure and blest.

2 There’s a joy which eternally fills my heart,
Thinking of home, thinking of home;
It wakens the music in every part,
Thinking of Christ above. [Refrain]

3 There’s a peace like the flowing of ocean-tide,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
Where purified saints with the Lord abide,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]

4 There’s a crown with its jewels of sparkling light,
Beautiful home, beautiful home;
It is shining far brighter than stars of night,
Beautiful home above. [Refrain]
