Lyrics

I love to think of Heaven,
That home so bright and fair,
Where all the saints shall gather,
And in its glory share.

Refrain

I’m longing for a mansion,
A home of peace and rest,
Where I may be with Jesus,
And be forever blest.

I love to think of Heaven,
That home of peace above,
Where endless day is dawning,
Where Jesus reigns in love.

Refrain

I love my blessèd Savior,
My dearest friend in time;
In Heav’n I hope to praise Him,
In yonder sunlight clime.
