4. A home in heaven! when the faint heart bleeds, 
By the Spirit's stroke for its evil deeds; 
OK I then what bliss in that heart forgiven, 
Does the hope inspire of a home in heaven. 
&, A home in heaven! when our friends are fled 
To the cheerless gloom of the mouldering dead. 
We wait in hope on the promise given; 
We will meet up there in our home in heav. 
6. Our home in heaven! oh, the- glorious home, 
And the Spirit joined with the bride says" come I" 
Come seek his face, and your sins forgiven, 
And rejoice in hope of your home in heaven.

Where the saints robed in white-- 
Cleansed in life's flowing fountain; 
Shining beauteous and bright, 
They inhabit the mountain. 
Where no sin, nor dismay, 
Neither trouble nor sorrow, 
Will be felt for a day, 
Nor be feared for the morrow.

He's prepared thee a home- 
Sinr snat thou believe itI 
And invites thee to come, 
Sinner wilt thou receive it I

For the tide is receding 
And the Saviour wiU so 
And ibarover.ecase pleading.
