    Lyrics

    (Mary Reeves - Albert E. Brumley)

    This world is not my home
    I'm just a-passing through
    My treasures are laid up
    Somewhere beyond the blue.

    The angels beckon me
    From heaven's open door
    And I can't feel at home
    In this world anymore.

    Oh Lord, you know
    I have no friend like you
    If heaven's not my home
    Then 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.

    I have a loving mother
    Just up in Gloryland
    And I don't expect to stop
    Until I shake her hand.

    She's waiting now for me
    In heaven's open door
    And I can't feel at home
    In this world anymore.

    Oh Lord, you know
    I have no friend like you
    If heaven's not my home
    Then 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.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Just over in Gloryland
    We'll live eternaly
    The saints on every hand
    Are shouting victory.

    Their songs of sweetest praise
    Drift back from heaven's shore
    And I can't feel at home
    In this world anymore.

    Oh Lord, you know
    I have no friend like you
    If heaven's not my home
    Then 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...
