1. I’m but a stranger here, Heav’n is my home; Earth is a desert drear, Heav’n is my home; Danger and sorrow stand Round me on ev’ry hand; Heav’n is my fatherland, Heav’n is my home.
2. What though the tempest rage, Heav’n is my home; Short is my pilgrimage, Heav’n is my home; And time’s wild, wintry blast Soon shall be over past; I shall reach home at last Heav’n is my home.
3. There at my Savior’s side, Heav’n is my home; I shall be glorified; Heav’n is my home; There are the good and blest, Those I love most and best And there I, too, shall rest; Heav’n is my home.
4. Therefore I murmur not, Heav’n is my home; Whate’er my earthly lot, Heav’n is my home; And I shall surely stand There at my Lord’s right hand; Heav’n is my fatherland, Heav’n is my home.
