This World is Not My Home
Written by Jr. Baxter (1946)
This World is not My Home

     D                           G              D
This world is not my home, I’m just a passing through;
                         E7                   A
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.
    D             D7      G7            D
The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,
                    B7   G       D     A7   D
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.


Chorus:

    D               G                   D
Oh, Lord you know I have no friend like You,
                              E               A
If heaven’s not my home, then Lord what will I do?
     D            D7      G7            D
The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,
                    B7   G       D     A7  D
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.


There all expecting me, and that’s one thing I know.
My Saviour’s pardoned me, and now I onward go.
I know He’ll take me through, thought I am weak and poor,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.


I have a loving mother up in glory land,
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.


Just up in glory land we’ll live eternally;
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.
