A SONG OF HEAVEN AND HOMELAND




Sometimes I hear strange music,
Like none e’er heard before,
Come floating softly earthward
As through heavens open door:
It seems like angel voices,
In strains of joy and love,
That swell the mighty chorus
Around the throne above.

O sweet [unearthly/celestial] music,
Heard from a land afar—
The song of Heaven and Homeland,
Through doors God leaves ajar.



Now soft, and low, and restful,
It floods my soul with peace,
As if God’s benediction
Bade all earth’s troubles cease,
Then grander than the voices,
Of wind, and wave, and sea—
It fills the dome of heaven
With glorious harmony.

O sweet [unearthly/celestial] music,
Heard from a land afar—
The song of Heaven and Homeland,
Through doors God leaves ajar.



This music haunts me ever,
Like something heard in dreams—
It seems to catch the cadence
Of heavenly winds and streams.—
My heart is filled with rapture,
To think, some day to come,
I’ll sing it with the angels
The song of heaven and home.

O sweet [unearthly/celestial] music,
Heard from a land afar—
The song of Heaven and Homeland,
Through doors God leaves ajar.
