1. I have come thro’ sorrow’s valley, and thro’ sin’s darkest night;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And my soul is full of glory, for I’m living in the light,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home.

Refrain
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And I catch a glimpse of minaret and dome;
Hearing sweet celestial strains,
Where my Lord in glory reigns,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home.

2. My dear Savior has gone over to prepare me a place;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
In the glory of His presence, with my loved ones saved by grace,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]

3. I will lift mine eyes in gladness, to behold Heaven’s land;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
And my faith becomes triumphant, for the vision is so grand;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]

4. O my brother from the wilderness, look up and behold;
I am standing on the hilltop looking home;
Now a mansion bright, a great white throne, and streets of shining gold,
I am standing on the hilltop looking home. [Refrain]
