A home in heav'n! what a joyful thought!
As the poor man toils in his weary lot;
His heart oppres'd, and with anguish riven,
From his home below to a home in heav'n.
A home in heav'n! as the suff'rer 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 heav'n.
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;
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 grave of the mould'ring dead;
We wait in hope of the promise given,
We will meet again in our home in heaven.
