Home of the Soul

 

 
 
 

Words:  James Rowe
Music:   Samuel W. Beazley

If for the prize we have striven,
After our labors are o’er,
Rest to our souls will be given,
On the eternal shore.

Chorus

Yes, a sweet rest is remaining
For the true children of God,
Where there will be no complaining,
Never a chast’ning rod.

Chorus

Soon, the bright homeland adoring,
We shall behold the glad dawn;
Lean on the Lord till the morning,
Trust till the night is gone.

Chorus

Home of the soul, beautiful home,
There we shall rest, never to roam;
Free from all care, happy and bright,
Jesus is there, He is the light!
Oft in the storm, lonely are we,
Sighing for home, longing for thee,
Beautiful home of the ransomed,
beside the crystal sea.

    Thanks for your site. I have enjoyed several of the songs, especially “Home of the Soul”. This reminds me of my Mother, who told me many times of the choir she and her family were members of in eastern Kentucky. God bless your praises of our Lord and Savior. Can you imagine the great choir of Heaven? Anna

    Thanks for your site. I have been roped into helping a senior choir to sing this song that I didn’t know. And your rendition helped to me to like the song as well as prepare to join in with our choir. Hopefully we do it as much justice as your choir has on this site. It will be wonderful when we join together in the mass choir in heaven and in the earth made new for ever.

    Thank you guys for this website. I signed up for song leading for a convention and I didn’t have the song lyrics and you guys really helped me out. Can’t wait to sing with my brothers and sisters in heaven.
