HOME IN VIEW




As when the weary traveller gains
The height of some o’er–looking hill;
His heart revives, if o'er the plains
He sees his home, though distant still.


While he surveys the much–loved spot,
He slights the space that lies between;
His past fatigues are now forgot,
Because his journey’s end is seen.


Thus, when the Christian pilgrim views
By faith, his mansion in the skies;
The sight his fainting strength renews,
And wings his speed to reach the prize.


The thought of home his spirit cheers,
No more he grieves for troubles past;
Nor any future trial fears,
So he may safe arrive at last.


’Tis there, he says, I am to dwell
With JESUS, in the realms of day;
Then I shall bid my cares farewell,
And he will wipe my tears away.


Jesus, on thee our hope depends,
To lead us on to thine abode;
Assured our home will make amends
For all our toil while on the road.

As when the weary traveller gains
The height of some o’er–looking hill;
His heart revives, if cross the plains
He eyes his home, though distant still.


So when the Christian pilgrim views,
By faith his mansion in the skies;
The sight his fainting strength renews,
And wings his speed to reach the prize.


Father, on thee our hope depends,
To lead us on to thine abode;
Assured our home will make amends
For all our toil while on the road.
