Whene’er I cross the stream of death,
I’ll be happy with the blest,
And Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
Came to earth to die for me,
I love to tell of that sweet home,
O, glory to the Lamb of God.
And this I know I’m on my way,
To the home prepared for me.
For some sweet day, some happy day,
I will join the happy throng,
Fare well, dear friends, I’m going home,
For my Savior bids me come,
For I’m a pilgrim on my way,
To that sweet home of endless day.
O, let us sing and praise the Lord,
For the gift of His dear Son.
