Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: Beyond the light of setting suns,
Beyond the light of setting suns,
Beyond the clouded sky,
Beyond where starlight fades in night —
I have a home on high.
A mansion there, . . . not made with hands, . . .
A place . . prepared for me ; . . .
And while God lives, and angels sing, . . .
That home . . my home shall be. . . .
2 Beyond all pain, beyond all care,
Beyond life's mystery,
Beyond the range of time and change —
My home's reserved for me.
3 Beyond where death's dark billows roll,
Beyond these scenes of night,
I look, while gladness fills my soul,
To yonder home of light.
4 My sins and sorrows, strifes and fears,
I bid them all farewell,
High up amid the eternal years,
With Christ, my Lord, to dwell.
