Most at home among the angels - Heavenly places
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Heavenly places.

“Ye are come unto Mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels.” (Hebrews 12,22)

1. Most at home among the angels,
  least at home upon this earth;
pressing onwards, rising upwards,
  children of the second birth;
children of the resurrection,
  children of the world to come,
citizens of no mean city,
  heirs of a celestial home:
        most at home in heaven! (PDF - Midi)

2. Most at home among the ransomed,
  in the Paradise of God;
spirits of the just made perfect,
  through the one all-cleansing blood;
most at home where holy gladness
  has its true and pure abode;
most at home upon Mount Zion,
  city of the living God:
        most at home in heaven!

3. Most at home amid the glory
  of the everlasting throne;
most at home amid the splendour
  of the one unsetting sun;
most at home amid the praises
  of the never-silent throng,
who through ages of the ages
  sing their never-jarring song:
        most at home in heaven!

4. Most at home in the high presence
  of the God on whom we call,
of the Father, Son and Spirit,
  of the glorious All in all,
where the song is “Holy, holy,
  God Almighty, great I AM,”
and the full responding chorus,
  “Worthy, worthy is the Lamb:”
        most at home in heaven!

5. Most at home within the bosom
  where the well-belovèd Son,
in that Holiest of holies,
  dwells for ever with his own;
most at home within that city
  where the light of living day
has shut out all death and darkness,
  where all tears are wiped away:
        most at home in heaven!
