Lyrics

Jesus the Savior will lead us to Heaven—
On to that land that is brighter than day;
Jesus the Savior, that home He will give us,
Will you not come and accept Him today?

Refrain

Jesus the Savior, salvation has given;
Will you not quickly His summons obey?
Jesus a home has prepared up in Heaven,
Will you accept and believe Him today?

Jesus the Savior is coming from Heaven—
Coming to take us all home to the land,
Where we shall rest and be happy forever,
There at the side of our Savior to stand.

Refrain

Jesus the Savior will guide us to Heaven—
Lead us along in the heavenly way,
Till in that land we shall rest and be happy,
In that pure clime that is fairer than day.

Refrain
