We Journey To The Home Above


We journey to the home above,
Never to say farewell,
To yon fair palaces of love,
Never to say farewell;
Within that glorious summer land
The many jewel’d mansions stand,
And there’ll we’ll meet, at God’s right hand,
Never to say farewell.

Refrain:
Never to say farewell,
Never to say farewell,
Oh, we shall meet at God’s right hand,
Never to say farewell.

We’ll meet our sainted parents there,
Never to say farewell,
And heav’n with sisters, brothers share,
Never to say farewell;
Upon the plains of perfect light,
Upon the pavements golden bright,
We’ll walk with them enrobed in white,
Never to say farewell. [Refrain]

We’ll meet beyond life’s swelling flood,
Never to say farewell,
Redeemed and washed in Jesus’ blood,
Never to say farewell;
Earth’s long, long night will pass away,
Dissolving into heavenly day,
And we shall with our loved ones stay,
Never to say farewell. [Refrain]

Oh, what a blessed hope is this,
Never to say farewell!
What pure and perfect happiness,
Never to say farewell!
Delivered from all sin and pain,
To reach yon fair, celestial plain,
And meet the loved and lost again,
Never to say farewell. [Refrain]
