“Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.” Psalm 119:54

Flute1. ‘Mid scenes of confusion and creature complaints,
How sweet to my soul is communion with saints;
To find at the banquet of mercy there’s room,
And feel in the presence of Jesus at home!

Refrain
Home, home, sweet, sweet home!
Receive me, dear Saviour, in glory, my home.

2. Sweet bonds that unite all the children of peace,
And thrice precious Jesus, whose love cannot cease;
Tho’ oft from Thy presence in sadness I roam,
I long to behold Thee in glory at home.
Refrain

3. I sigh, from this body of sin to be free,
Which hinders my joy and communion with Thee;
Tho’ now my temptations like billows may foam,
All, all will be peace when I’m with Thee at home.
Refrain

4. While here in the valley of conflict I stay,
O give me submission and strength as my day;
In all my afflictions to Thee would I come,
Rejoicing in hope of my glorious home.
Refrain

5. Whate’er Thou deniest, O give me Thy grace!
Thy Spirit’s sure witness, and smiles of Thy face;
Indulge me with patience to wait at Thou come,
And find, even now, a sweet foretaste of home.
Refrain

6. I long, dearest Lord, in Thy beauties to shine,
No more as an exile in sorrow to pine;
And in Thy dear image rise up to the sky,
With glorified millions to praise Thee on high.
Refrain
