Representative Text

1 Over yonder is a mansion, Christ prepared for me,
God ordained that I should have it,
For eternity,
And I’ll send a prayer before me,
Ere I cross the foam.
Angels get my mansion ready I am coming home,

Refrain:
I'm coming home to heaven, with the angels there to dwell
I'm coming home to glory, where I’ll never say farewell,
I'm coming to that city
Nevermore again to roam.
Angels get my mansion ready I am coming home.

2 Tho’ a pilgrim I have wander'd, in the valley here,
Now unto the blessed homeland
I am drawing near,
Soon amid the scenes of sorrow,
I will cease to roam.
Angels get my mansion ready I am coming home, [Refrain]

3 When my work below is ended, and my race is run,
I will hear my Saviour calling,
At the set of sun,
Then I’ll send a message upward
Past yon vaulted dome.
Angels get my mansion ready I am coming home, [Refrain]

4 Soon our Lord will come in glory, come for you and me,
And will take us to that city,
There to ever be,
Then on golden plains eternal
We will ever roam.
Angels get my mansion ready I am coming home, [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
