Full Text

1 We are bound for the mansions of glory,
In that beautiful city of gold,
Where, beholding the face of our Savior,
It will fill us with rapture untold.

Refrain:
When we get home we’ll shout and sing
The praises of our Redeemer and King,
And make the heavenly arches ring
With the songs of home, sweet home.

2 ’Tis the kingdom we have now within us,
It is peace, it is comfort and joy,
And a hope in our blessed Redeemer,
Which the tempter can never destroy. [Refrain]

3 The Redeemer has wonderful power,
He is leading us on every day,
And if gladly we follow each moment,
He will keep us from wand’ring away. [Refrain]

4 We are dead to the world and its pleasure,
Our affections are centered above,
Where we own such a wonderful treasure,
’Tis a home in the city of love. [Refrain]
