This world is not my resting place,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home;
I seek a better home than this,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home.

Refrain

My home above! sweet home of love!
Tho’ awhile the earth I roam,
A mansion fair awaits me there,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home.

In that blest home there is no night,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home;
The face of Jesus is the light,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home.

Refrain

O weary one, with sin oppressed,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home;
Come, go with me, and find sweet rest,
Heav’n’s my home, Heav’n’s my home.
