This World Is Not My Home

C.M.

Rev. Mr. Gamewell

As sung by

Refrain:

1.

When I can read my title clear

To mansions in the skies,

I'll bid farewell to every fear,

And wipe my weeping eyes.

2.

Should earth against my soul engage,

And fiery darts be hurled,

Then I can smile at Satan's rage,

And face a frowning world.

3.

Let cares like a wild deluge come,

And storms of sorrow fall,

May I but safely reach my home,

My God, my heaven, my all:

4.

There I shall bathe my weary soul

In seas of heavenly rest,

And not a wave of trouble roll

Across my peaceful breast.

This world is not my home,

This world is not my home,

This world's a wilderness of owe,

But heaven is my home.
