1 When we get home, O blessed hope!
We speak the words with trembling tongue,
While in this world of sin we grope,
Where heads are bowed and hearts are wrung.

Refrain:
When we get home, when we get home,
To heav’nly lands and mansions fair,
When we have crossed cold Jordan’s foam,
How sweet will be our welcome there.

3 When we get home, O sweet release,
From sin and sorrow, pain and tears,
To feel the calm of perfect peace,
And know all joy thro’ endless years. [Refrain]

4 When we get home, O rich reward,
To meet our loved ones gone before,
To feel the presence of our Lord,
And know the love that shall endure. [Refrain]
