Lyrics

In that beautiful home over there,
Where the flowers shall fade nevermore;
There the sun ever shines bright and fair,
On the banks of the pearly white shore.

Refrain

In that home over there,
In that beautiful home over there,
We will shine as the stars evermore,
In that beautiful home over there.

We will sing in that beautiful home,
When the robe and the crown we shall wear,
And the King in His beauty behold
On His throne with the angels so fair.

Refrain

To our bountiful Giver above,
All arrayed in His splendor so fair;
We will sing evermore of His love,
When we meet in that home over there.
