1 Up to the beautiful Giver of life,
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up to the dwelling, where cometh no strife,
The dear ones are gathering home.

Refrain:
Gathering home! Gathering home!
Never to sorrow more, never to roam,
Gathering home, Gathering home!
God’s children are gathering home!

2 Up to the city where falleth no night,
Gathering home! gathering home!
Up where the Savior’s own face is the light,
The dear ones are gathering home. [Refrain]

3 Up to the beautiful mansions above,
Gathering home! gathering home!
Safe in the arms of his infinite love,
The dear ones are gathering home. [Refrain]
