This World Is Not My Home

A re-post from April 19, 2016.

Truth in Love

We sang this hymn Sunday morning with the church where my husband and I have been attending since we moved to Arkansas. It was even mentioned in the sermon that morning as a bullet-point about Christians’ true citizenship. It’s one of my favorite songs because of the picture it paints in my mind of reaching the true end goal. Here are the lyrics below if you haven’t heard it before (by Albert Brumley):

This world is not my home I’m just 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

They’re all expecting me and that’s one thing I know
my Savior pardoned me and now I onward go
I know He’ll take me through though I am weak and poor
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore
