This World Is Not My Home [core]

This world is not my home
I'm 4 just a-passing 1 through
My treasure and my hopes are (2) all beyond the 5 blue
Where 1 many Christian children
have 4 gone on be- 1 fore
And I can't feel at home in this 5 world any 1 more

Chorus
Oh Lord (you know)
I have no friend like You
If Heaven's not my home, Oh Lord, what will I do
The angels beckon me
from Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore

They're all expecting me
that's one thing I know
I fixed it up with Jesus, a long time ago
I know he'll take me through
though I am weak and poor
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore

Over in glory land
there'll be no dying there
The saints all shouting victory and singing everywhere
I hear the voice of them
that's gone on before
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore

I have a loving mother
over in glory land
I don't expect to stop, until I hold her hand
She's waiting there for me
at Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore
