Representative Text

1 We are going home: we've had visions bright
Of that holy land, that world of light,
Where the long, dark night of time is past,
And the morn of eternity come at last.
There the weary saints no more shall roam,
But dwell in a sunny, peaceful home,
Where the brow with celestial gems is crowned,
And mansions fair with praise resound.

Refrain:
O that beautiful home!
O that beautiful home!

2 We are going home: we soon shall be
Where the skies are clear, and the soil is free;
Where the victor's song floats o'er the plains,
And the seraph's anthem blends with its strains;
Where the sun rolls down a brilliant flood
Of beams on a world that's fair and good,
And the stars that dimmed at nature's doom
Will sparkle and shine o'er the new earth's bloom; [Refrain]

3 Where the tears and sighs which here are given,
Are exchanged for the gladsome songs of heaven;
And the beauteous forms that sing and shine
Are guarded well by a hand divine.
Love's banner pure and friendship's wand
Are waving above that princely band;
And the glory of God, like a molten sea,
Bathes the immortal company. [Refrain]

4 'Mid the ransomed throng, 'mid the sea of bliss,
'Mid the holy city's gorgeousness,
'Mid the verdant plains, 'mid the angel's cheer,
'Mid the flowers that never of winter hear,
Where the conqueror's song, that sounds afar,
Is wafted on the balmy air,
'Mid the endless years, we then shall prove
The matchless depths of a Saviour's love. [Refrain]
