Lyrics

Jesus the Sav­ior will lead us to Hea­ven—
On to that land that is bright­er than day;
Jesus the Sav­ior, that home He will give us,
Will you not come and ac­cept Him to­day?

Refrain

Jesus the Sav­ior, sal­va­tion has given;
Will you not quick­ly His sum­mons obey?
Jesus a home has pre­pared up in Hea­ven,
Will you ac­cept and be­lieve Him to­day?

Jesus the Sav­ior is com­ing from Hea­ven—
Coming to take us all home to the land,
Where we shall rest and be hap­py for­ev­er,
There at the side of our Sav­ior to stand.

Refrain

Jesus the Sav­ior will guide us to Hea­ven—
Lead us along in the hea­ven­ly way,
Till in that land we shall rest and be hap­py,
In that pure clime that is fair­er than day.
