      Safely Home

      I am home in heaven, dear ones:
      Oh, so happy and so bright!
      There is perfect joy and beauty
      In this everlasting light.

      All the pain and grief is over,
      Every restless tossing passed;
      I am now at peace forever,
      Safely home in heaven at last.

      There is work still waiting for you.
      So you must not idly stand;
      Do it now, while life remaineth--
      You shall rest in God's own land.

      When that work is all completed,
      He will gently call you home;
      Oh, the rapture of that meeting
      Oh, the joy to see you come!
