Representative Text

1 ‘Tis sweet in the trials and conflict of sin,
Temptation without and temptation within,
To know thro’ the journey of life as I roam,
I am bound for the mansions of glory at home.

Refrain:
Of glory at home,
Of glory at home,
I am bound for the mansions of glory,
The mansions of glory at home.

2 ‘Tis sweet in the gloom of earth’s sorrow of fears
My eyes overflowing with penitent tears,
To know, tho’ the billows around me may foam,
I am bound for the mansions of glory at home. [Refrain]

3 I ask not to hasten from duty or care,
The troubles of life let me patiently bear,
If only I know as I look thro’ the gloom,
I am bound for the mansions of glory at home. [Refrain]
