I Am home in Heaven, dear ones;
All’s so happy, all’s so bright!
There’s perfect joy and beauty,
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly,
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus’ love illumined,
Every dark and fearful glade.
And he came himself to meet me,
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus’ arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idle stand;
Do your work while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
When that work is complete,
He will gently call you home;
Oh! the rapture of the meeting!
