Home in Heaven

Author Unknown

I am home in heaven, dear ones;Oh, so happy and so bright.There is perfect joy and beautyIn this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,Every restless tossing passed.I am now at peace forever,Safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmlyTrod the valley of the shade?Oh, but Jesus' love illuminedEvery dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet meIn the way so hard to tread;And with Jesus' arm to lean onCould I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,For I love you dearly still.Try to look beyond death's shadows;Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,So you must not idly stand.Do it now while life remaineth;You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,He will gently call you home.Oh, the rapture of that meeting;Oh, the joy to see you come.
