Jerusalem! My happy home!
O how I long for thee!
When will my sorrows have an end?
Thy joys when shall I see?

Home, sweet home, my long sought home,
My home in heav'n above.

Thy walls are all of precious stones,
Most glorious to behold!
Thy gates are richly set with pearl,
Thy streets are paved with gold.


My friends, I bid you all adieu,
I leave you in God's care;
And if I here no more see you,
Go on, I'll meet you there.
