Lyrics

Home at last on heav’nly mountains,
Heard the Come and enter in;
Saved by life’s fair flowing fountains,
Saved from earthly taint and sin.

Refrain

Home, sweet home, our home forever;
All the pilgrim journey past;
Welcomed home to wander never,
Saved through Jesus—Home at last.

Free at last from all temptation,
No more need of watchful care;
Joyful in complete salvation,
Giv’n the victor’s crown to wear.

Refrain

Saved to greet on hills of glory
Loved ones we have missed so long;
Saved to tell the sinner’s story,
Saved to sing redemption’s song.

Refrain

Welcomed at the pearly portal,
Ever more a welcome guest;
Welcomed to the life immortal,
In the mansions of the blest.
