1 There’s a place in heav’n prepared for me,
When the toils of this life are o’er;
Where the saints, robed in white, shall forever be,
Singing praises forevermore.

Refrain:
Jesus promised me a home over there,
Jesus promised me a home over there;
No more sickness, sorrow, pain or death,
Jesus promised me a home over there.

2 In my Father’s home are mansions bright,
Jesus says it, and I know ‘tis true;
There’s a home for me in that land of light,
Brother, sister, there is one for you. [Refrain]

3 Many dear ones we loved are before the throne,
In that happy, happy home on high;
I shall walk with them thro’ the streets of gold,
I shall wear a starry crown by and by. [Refrain]

4 In that home above, beyond the skies,
Soon from sickness, pain, and death I’ll be,
There with Jesus to reign forevermore,
Throughout all eternity. [Refrain]
