2 What though the tempests rage?

Heaven is my home;
Short is my pilgrimage,

Heaven is my home;
And time's wild wintry blast
Soon shall be overpast,
I shall reach home at last;
Heaven is my home.

3 There, at my Savior's side,

Heaven is my home;
May I be glorified,

Heaven is my honie;
There are the good and blest,
Those I love most and best,
Grant me with them to rest;

Heaven is my hoine.

4 Therefore I murmur not,

Heaven is my home;
Whate'er my earthly lot,

Heaven is my home.
And I shall surely stand
There at my Lord's right hand,
Heaven is my fatherland:
Heaven is my home!
