Hymn/Song Information

This world is a wilderness wide I have




This world is a wilderness wide;
We have nothing
to seek or to choose;
We've no thought
in the waste to abide;
We've nought to regret nor to lose.


The Lord is Himself gone before,
He has marked out
the path that we tread;
It's as sure as the love we adore,
We have nothing
to fear nor to dread.


There is but that one
in the waste,
Which His footsteps
have marked as His own;
And we follow in diligent haste
To the seats where
He's put on His crown.


For the path where
our Saviour is gone
Has led up to His Father and God,
To the place where
He's now on the throne;
And His strength shall
be ours on the road.


And with Him shall
our rest be on high,
When in holiness
bright we sit down,
In the joy of His love ever nigh,
In the peace that His
presence shall crown.


'Tis the treasure
we've found in His love,
That has made us
now pilgrims below,
And 'tis there,
when we reach Him above,
As we're known,
all His fulness we'll know.


And, Saviour,
'tis Thee from on high,
We await till the time
Thou shalt come,
To take those Thou
hast led by Thine eye
To Thyself in Thy heavenly home.


Till then 'tis the path
Thou hast trod,
Our delight and our comfort shall be;
We're content with
Thy staff and Thy rod,
Till with Thee all Thy glory we see.
