Full Text

1 We are told of a home in that city above,
When with life and its cares we are thro’,
Where the walls are of jasper, the streets are of gold;—
I want to go there, don’t you?

Refrain:
I want to go there, I want to go there,
Where loved ones are waiting in that homeland so fair,
Where there’s never a trial, a sorrow or care,
I want to go there, don’t you?

2 Since here God has called me, I’ll stand at my post,
And do what He gives me to do,
For the thought is refreshing as homeward I look;—
I want to go there, don’t you? [Refrain]

3 Soon this brief life is ended, our work here is done,
For the days are so fleeting and few,
Where loved ones have gathered no death ever comes;—
I want to go there, don’t you? [Refrain]

4 There none but the pure shall that city behold;
’Tis the home of the faithful and true,
Where the Saviour a mansion for me has prepared;—
I expect to go there, don’t you? [Refrain]
