I go to prepare a place for you.@John 14:2

M. A. Hood, in The Gospel Way, by Anthony J. Showalter et al. (Dalton, Georgia: A. J. Showalter, 1923), number 19.

R. Edwin Perry (🔊 pdf nwc).

Far beyond the strife of this earthly life,
There’s a home prepared for us above;
And some blessèd day we’ll go there to stay,
Evermore to sing of Jesus’ love.

Refrain

When we get home,
No more we’ll wander, no more roam,
But peace complete and rapture sweet
We’ll share when we get home.

In that home so sweet with its joys complete,
We shall find the rest for which we sigh;
Sing redemption’s song with the blood washed throng,
When we reach that city by and by.

Refrain

Just inside the gate, where our loved ones wait,
Jesus our dear Savior we shall see;
Look upon His face, praise Him for His grace,
O how sweet ’twill be to you and me.

Refrain
