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, You shall rest in God’s own land. 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!
