76. Nearer Home

1 One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o’er and o’er:
I’m nearer my home today
Than ever I’ve been before.

I’m nearer my home,
My beautiful home;
I’m nearer my home in heaven today
Than ever I’ve been before.

2 I’m near my Father’s house
Where many mansions be;
I’m nearer His throne today,
I’m nearer the crystal sea. [Refrain]

3 I’m near my going home
To lay this burden down;
I’m leaving my cross of grief,
Then wearing my starry crown. [Refrain]
