Representative Text

1 We have a home eternal,
A house not made with hands;
Upon the Rock of Ages
Its sure foundation stands.
Our faith, from Pisgah’s mountain,
Can see its portals fair.
O blessed home eternal!
Praise God, we’ll soon be there!

Refrain:
A few more toils and trials,
A few more storms to bear,
And all will then be over.
Praise God, we’ll soon be there!

2 We have a home eternal,
A home with splendor bright,
Where Jesus reigns triumphant
And Jesus is the light,
Along the crystal river,
The Tree of Life so fair,
Its golden fruit is waving:
Praise God, we’ll soon be there! [Refrain]

3 That home our Lord has purchased;
His blood the price has paid;
And numbers without number,
In spotless robes arrayed,
With shouts proclaim His mercy,
With shouts His love declare.
O joy beyond expressing!
Praise God, we’ll soon be there! [Refrain]
