(Tune: This Is My Fatherís World#39 SMD)

This world is not my home,

Iím only passing through.

A stranger here, I must go on,

My home is now in view!


Refrain: ďForever with the Lord!Ē

Amen! So let it be!

With Christ Iíll live for evermore

In immortality!


There is no resting place

In all the earth for me;

But Christ in heavín prepares a place

Of rest, sweet rest, for me!


My journey soon shall end,

My Lord will come for me.

††††† Heíll take me home to be with Him

††††† For all eternity!


My soul, be of good cheer!

With such good hope as this,

What sorrows here can be compared

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† To heavenís endless bliss?
