1 Nearer home, nearer home,
I am one day nearer home,
Nearer all that is dear to the soul;
Nearer kindred and friends,
Nearer to the bounds of life,
Blessèd thought, I am nearer the goal!

Refrain:
Nearer home, sweet home,
Every day takes me one day nearer home;
Nearer home, sweet home,
Soon I’ll rest in that home, sweet home.

2 Nearer home, nearer home,
I am one day nearer home,
Nearer where many mansions will be;
Nearer to that great throne,
And the white robed angel band,
On the banks of the bright crystal sea. [Refrain]

3 Nearer home, nearer home,
Yes, I’m one day nearer home,
There the cross is laid down for a crown;
Nearer home, that blest land
Where there’s rest from toil and care,
And our Savior invites us to come. [Refrain]
