The Home Over There

1.O Think of the 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 the home over there.

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

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

3. My Saviour is now over there,
Where my kindred and friends are at rest;
Then away from my sorrow and care
Let me fly to the land of the blest.

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

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

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