There is a home eternal,
Beautiful and bright,
Where sweet joys supernal
Never are dimmed by night;
Whiterobed angels are singing
Ever around the bright throne;
When, oh, when shall I see thee,
Beautiful, beautiful home?

Refrain:
Home, beautiful home,
Bright, beautiful home;
Home, home of our Savior,
Bright, beautiful home.

Flowers forever are springing
In that home so fair;
Thousands of children are singing
Praises to Jesus there;
How they swell the glad anthems
Ever around the bright throne;
When, oh when shall I see thee,
Beautiful, beautiful home?

Soon shall I join that anthem,
Far beyond the sky;
Jesus became my ransom,
Why should I fear to die?
Soon my eyes will behold Him,
Seated upon the bright throne;
Then, oh, then shall I see thee,
Beautiful, beautiful home!
