Scripture Verse

We…will be caught up…to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:17


Words & Music: W. O. Fair­cloth, in Car­ol Crown, by James D. Vaugh­an et al. (Law­rence­burg, Ten­nes­see: James D. Vaugh­an, 1915), num­ber 22 (🔊 pdf nwc), alt.

If you know Fair­cloth’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of him (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


There is a home, it’s just above,
Where all is glo­ry bright and fair;
O how my heart is filled with love,
To hear the shout­ing in the air.


I’m on the way to glo­ry fair,
Shouting, shout­ing, shout­ing in the air;
I’m on the way to glo­ry fair;
There will be shout­ing, shout­ing,
Shouting in the air.

There is a home so bright and fair,
And I can see its por­tals clear;
And when we meet our Sav­ior there,
There’ll be a shout­ing in the air.


There is a home not made with hands,
It’s in that glo­ry, glo­ry land;
And in that home I long to stand
To share the shout­ing with that band.
