Hymn/Song Information

I journey through a desert drear and




I journey through a desert
drear and wild,
Yet is my heart by such
sweet thoughts beguiled
Of Him on whom I lean,
my Strength, my Stay,
I can forget the sorrows of the way.


Thoughts of His loveó
the root of evíry grace
Which finds in this poor heart
a dwelling place;
The sunshine of my soul,
than day more bright,
And my calm pillow of repose by night.


Thoughts of His sojourn
in this vale of tears;
The tale of love unfolded
in those years
Of sinless suffering
and patient grace,
I love again and yet again to trace.


Thoughts of His gloryó
on the Cross I gaze,
And there behold its sad
yet healing rays;
Beacon of hope which,
lifted up on high,
Illumes with heavenly light
the tear-dimmed eye.


Thoughts of His coming;
for that joyful day
In patient hope I watch,
and wait, and pray;
The dawn draws nigh,
the midnight shadows flee,
O what a sunrise will that advent be!
