Hymn/Song Information

Thy Father's house Thine own bright home Where




Thy Father's house!—thine own bright home!
And thou hast there a place for me!
Though yet an exile here I roam,
That distant home by faith I see.


I see its domes resplendent glow,
Where beams of God’s own glory fall;
And trees of life immortal grow,
Whose fruits o’erhang the sapphire wall.


I know that thou, who on the tree
Didst deign our mortal guilt to bear,
Wilt bring thine own to dwell with thee,
And waitest to receive me there!


Thy love will there array my soul
In thine own robe of spotless hue
And I shall gaze, while ages roll,
On thee, with raptures ever new!


Oh, welcome day! when thou my feet
Shalt bring the shining threshold o’er;
A Father’s warm embrace to meet,
And dwell at home for evermore!
