1 I must not make this world my home,
For it shall soon be left behind;
And when the parting day has come,
What sort of future will I find?

Refrain 1-2:
I’ll set my sails for heaven’s shore,
And flee from every earthly snare,
So when this changeful life is o’er,
I’ll find a “welcome home” up there.

2 I will not sell my soul for dross,
For fleeting honors I’ll not strain,
Though all the world shall be my loss,
I’ve all of heaven as my gain. [Refrain]

3 If you are eating earthly leav’n,
The life you live will surely tell—
Unless you make your home in heav’n,
You’ll find your home for aye in hell.

Refrain 3:
So set your sails for heaven’s shore,
And flee from every earthly snare,
So when this changeful life is o’er,
You’ll find a “welcome home” up there.
