High, in the Father's house above,
 
Our mansion is prepared;
 
There is the home, the rest we love,
 
And there our bright reward.
John 14:1-3; Revelation 14:13; Colossians 3:24
2
With Him we love, in spotless white,
 
In glory we shall shine;
 
His blissful presence our delight,
 
In love and joy divine.
Revelation 3:4; Matthew 13:43; Psalm 16:11; Jude 1:24
3
All taint of sin shall be removed,
 
All evil done away:
 
And we shall dwell with God's Beloved,
 
Through God's eternal day.
Revelation 21:3; Revelation 21:25
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:1-3)
