HOME IN HEAVEN




A Home in heaven! what a joyful thought!
As the poor man toils in his weary lot;
His heart oppressed, and with anguish riven,
From his home below to a home in heaven.


A home in heaven! as the sufferer lies
On his bed of pain, and uplifts his eyes
To that bright home what a joy is given.
With the blessed thought of a home in heaven.


A home in heaven! when our pleasures fade,
And our wealth and fame in the dust are laid,
And our strength decays, and our health is riven,
We are happy still with our home in heaven.


A home in heaven! when the sinner mourns,
And with contrite heart to the Saviour turns;
O then what bliss in that heart forgiven,
Does the hope inspire of a home in heaven!


A home in heaven! when our friends are fled
To the cheerless home of the mouldering dead;
We wait in hope of the promise given,
We will meet again in our home in heaven.


---Alternative verses---


A home in heaven! When the faint heart bleeds.
By the Spirit’s strokes for its evil deeds,
Oh, then what bliss in that heart forgiven,
Does the hope inspire of a home in heaven!


A home in heaven! When our friends are fled
To the cheerless gloom of the mouldering dead,
We wait in hope on the promise given—
We will meet up there in our home in heaven.
