Lyrics

  1. 1. Oh, what songs of the heart
    We shall sing all the day,
    When again we assemble at home,
    When we meet ne'er to part
    With the blest o'er the way,
    There no more from our loved ones to roam!
    When we meet ne'er to part,
    Oh, what songs of the heart
    We shall sing in our beautiful home.
  2. 2. Tho our rapture and bliss
    There's no song can express,
    We will shout, we will sing o'er and o'er,
    As we greet with a kiss,
    And with joy we caress
    All our loved ones that passed on before;
    As we greet with a kiss,
    In our rapture and bliss,
    All our loved ones that passed on before.
  3. 3. Oh, the visions we'll see
    In that home of the blest,
    There's no word, there's no thought can impart,
    But our rapture will be
    All the soul can attest,
    In the heavenly songs of the heart;
    But our rapture will be
    In the vision we'll see
    Best expressed in the songs of the heart.
  4. 4. Oh, what songs we'll employ!
    Oh, what welcome we'll hear!
    While our transports of love are complete,
    As the heart swells with joy
    In embraces most dear
    When our heavenly parents we meet!
    As the heart swells with joy,
    Oh, what songs we'll employ,
    When our heavenly parents we meet!
