I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
All so happy, all so bright!
Here is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pains 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 all completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come!
