My Eternal Home (Home) 544

Tune: W. L. Montague, 1866; Arranged by H. D. Hughes, 1927
Lyrics: Christian Harmony, 1866
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
My Father's house on high,
Is my eternal home,
O God forbid that I should fail,
While trav'ling here below.


Then join the heav'nly throng,
To sing redeeming love,
While endless ages roll along,
We'll praise our God above.

My Father and my God,
Oh lead me safely on,
Till in that heav'nly world above,
I feel my work is done.

H. D. Hughes was from Ozark, Alabama.
