Hymn: Beyond these earthly scenes in sight
The Celestial Home
 
Beyond these earthly scenes in sight
Immortal beings rest
In realms of infinite del[i]ght
The home of Jesus Christ
 
chorus O the home the glorious home
Of the beloved Son
Where the righteous all shall meet
And be forever one!
 
Celestial home! could our weak eyes
But half its charms explore
How would our souls desire to rise
And live on earth no more
O the home the glorious home &c
 
There pain and sorrow never come
No nothing there is vain
But perfect peace and ceaseless bloom
With endless pleasure reign
O the home &c. [p. [180]]
