Oftimes we weary
Of life and its struggles.
Tired of the conflict
And longing for rest,
Our hearts are yearning
And our thoughts fond are turning
Over toward that bright land of the best.
Home bright and vernal
And mansions eternal,
Shining with luster
On the heavenly shore.
Jesus, forgive us
And all who are faithful.
There we may dwell with him forevermore.
