Come, all my dear brethren, and help me to sing;
Iím going to Jesus, Heís heavenís great King,
He died to atone for the sins of the world;
His banner is flying; His sails are unfurled.
Heavín's my home, heavín's my home,
Iím going to Jesus, for heavín's my home.
While here in the valley of conflict I stay,
Oh, give me submission, and strength as my day,
In all my afflictions to Thee would I come,
Rejoicing in hope of my glorious home.
I long, dearest Lord, in Thy beauties to shine,
No more as an exile in sorrow to pine;
And in Thy dear image arise from the tomb,
With glorified millions to praise Thee at home.
