There is a home, a peaceful home,
A home of joy and love;
And they that bear the cross below
Shall wear the crown above.


My home, sweet home,
My beautiful home above,
My home, sweet home,
My beautiful home above!

No night shall dim that glorious home,
For Jesus is the light;
And mourning pilgrims here below
Shall there be clad in white.


With palms of victory in their hands
They with the ransomed sing;
All praise to Him who washed us white,
Our Savior, God and king!
