My Home Above 524
Tune: John Wesley Miller, ca. 1913
Lyrics: John Wesley Miller, ca. 1913
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
While tenting here I have no home,
I'll work and toil 'till death shall come,
For in this world I find no rest,
I'll seek a home among the blest.
O Lord, if I must live this life,
Then let me spend my days for Christ;
Let not my work of life be vain,
Lord help me sing a sweeter strain,
O Lord if I must live this life,
Pray help me spend my days for Christ.
My home is not beneath the skies,
Where tempests rage and storms arise;
I have a home that's built above,
Where all is peace, and joy and love.
There in that home above the skies,
They know no aches, or sobs, or sighs;
But all is joy and peace and love,
And Christ shall lead the host above.
Dedicated to M. J. Harmon of Tyler, Texas.
