Home at Last.

P. M.
Music by Rev. J. W. DADMUN.

1. Home at last! Home at last,
From an earthly shore,
For O! I've joined the ransomed ones,
who passed on long before.
Here each tear is wiped away
By God, the Holy One;
There's naught but songs of joy and praise
Round the Eternal's throne.

2. The pure in heart! the pure in heart!
Robed in spotless white,
Are here with starry crowns of joy,
All gloriously bright,
Some I loved so long ago,
Who left me sad and lone,
I meet among the heavenly host,
Within our Father's home.

3. Safe at home! safe at home!
O, let the echo go,
To soothe the hearts that mourn me yet,
In that first home below.
His dear arms are round me now,
Who was for sinners slain;
Through him I've won eternal life,
For me to die was gain.
Safe at home! safe at home!
From an earthly shore;
I'll bless and praise thee, O, my God,
Forever, evermore.
