Heaven is My Home

(This hymn-poem was loved and requested by Pastor Stam)

 

 

I’m but a stranger here, for Heaven is my home!

Earth is a desert drear, Oh Heaven is my home!

Danger and sorrow stand, round me on every hand,

Heaven is my fatherland, Yes Heaven is my Home.

 

What though the tempest rage, Heaven is my home!

Short is my pilgrimage, for Heaven is my home!

And time’s wild wintry blast, soon shall me overpass,

I shall reach my home at last, for Heaven is my home.

 

There at my Savior’s side, Yes Heaven is my home!

I shall be glorified, Oh Heaven is my home!

There are the good and blest, those I have loved the best

And there I too shall rest, for Heaven is my home.

 

Therefore I murmur not, for Heaven is my home!

Whate’er my earthly lot, Heaven is my home!

And I shall surely stand, there at my Lord’s right hand,

Heaven is my fatherland, Oh Heaven is my home!
