Hymn/Song Information

O Homeland O Homeland




O Homeland! O Homeland!
No lonely heart is there,
No rush of blinding anguish,
No slowly dropping tear:
Now, like an infant crying
Its mother’s face to see,
|:O blessed, blessed Homeland,
I stretch my arms to thee!:|


O Homeland! O Homeland!
Whose joy no tongue can tell,
No sighing of the weary,
No more the sad farewell;
But sound of children’s voices,
And shout of saintly song,
|:Are heard thy happy highways
And golden streets along:|


O Homeland! O Homeland!
The veil is very thin
That stretches thy fair meadows
And this cold world between;
A breath aside may blow it,
A heart-throb burst it through,
|:And bring, in one glad moment,
The pearly gates in view:|


O Homeland! O Homeland!
One—Chief of all thy band.
One—altogether lovely,
One—Lord of all the land.
Now standeth at thy portals
To welcome there His bride;
|:And resting on His bosom,
I shall be satisfied.:|
