Verse 1
I am a stranger here,
Heaven is my Home;
Earth is a desert drear,
Heaven is my Home;
Danger and sorrow stand
Round me on every hand;
Heaven is my Fatherland
Heaven is my Home

Verse 2
What though the tempest rage,
Heaven is my Home;
Short is my pilgrimage,
Heaven is my Home;
And time's wild wintry blast
Soon will be overpassed;
I shall reach Home at last;
Heaven is my Home

Verse 3
There at my Saviour's side ?
Heaven is my Home ?
I shall be glorified,
Heaven is my Home;
There are the good and blest,
Those I love most and best;
And there I too shall rest,
Heaven is my Home

Verse 4
Therefore I murmur not,
Heaven is my Home,
Whate'er my earthly lot,
Heaven is my Home;
And I shall surely stand
There at my Lord's right Hand
Heaven is my Fatherland,
Heaven is my Home
