Hymn/Song Information

SWEET HOME




My home is in heaven, my rest is not here,
Then why should I murmur when trials appear?
Be hushed, my dark spirit, the worst that can come.
But shortens thy journey, and hastens thee home.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Saviour, for heaven, my home.


It is not for me to be seeking my bliss,
And building my hopes in a region like this;
I look for a city which hands have not piled;
I pant for a country by sin undented.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Saviour, for heaven, my home.


The thorn and the thistle around me may grow,
I would not recline upon roses below;
I ask not my portion, I seek not my rest,
Till I find them forever on Jesus' s breast.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Saviour, for heaven, my home.


Afflictions may try me—they cannot destroy;
One vision of home turns them all into joy;
And the bitterest tears that flow from mine eyes
But sweeten my hope of that home in the skies.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Saviour, for heaven, my home.


Let trouble and danger my progress oppose,
They can only make heaven more bright at the close;
Come joy, or come sorrow, whate'er may befall,
One moment in glory will make up for all.

Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Saviour, for heaven, my home.
