Representative Text

1 Walking along life's road one day,
I heard a voice so sweetly say:
“A place up in heav'n I am building thee,
A beautiful, beautiful home.”

Home, sweet home, home sweet home
Where I'll never roam!
I see the light of that city so bright,
My home, sweet home.

2 Loved ones upon that shore I'll meet,
Casting their crowns at Jesus' feet;
I'll worship and praise Him forevermore
In my beautiful, beautiful home. [Refrain]

3 Life's day is short, I soon shall go
To be with Him Who loved me so;
I see in the distance that shining shore,
My beautiful, beautiful home! [Refrain]
