Lyrics

There’s a beautiful mansion in Heav’n for all
Who believe in Jesus’ name;
Those who trust in His grace and obey His call,
Ever in His blest courts shall reign.

Refrain

There’s a home in that beautiful land,
A home for you and me,
On that bright golden strand,
We shall dwell eternally.

We have friends gone before to that land on high,
Sheltered safely in His fold;
We expect to be there some sweet by and by,
There to dwell ’mid the joys untold.

Refrain

When by faith we have crossed to the other side,
We shall join the angel band,
With our Savior and loved ones to e’er abide
On the beautiful golden strand.
