94. A Home Over There

1 O think of a home over there
By the side of the river of light
Where the saints all immortal and fair
Are robed in their garments of white.

Over there, over there,
O think of the home over there
Over there, over there,
O think of a home over there.

2 O think of the friends over there,
Who before us the journey have trod;
Of the songs that they breathe on the air,
In their home in the palace of God. [Refrain]

3 I’ll soon be at home over there,
For the end of my journey I see;
Many dear to my heart over there
Are watching and waiting for me. [Refrain]
