ONE DAY NEARER




The evening sun is sinking fast,
The gloomy shades are falling,
And evening zephyrs as they pass
The solemn truth are calling:-

We're one day nearer home above
The stars grow brighter o'er us,
The sunlight fades in peace and love,-
The land lies just before us.


The sun of life will thus descend,
And friendly ties will sever;
But, when at last our troubles end,
We'll rest in joy forever.

We're one day nearer home above
The stars grow brighter o'er us,
The sunlight fades in peace and love,-
The land lies just before us.


Though storms of sorrow here may blow,
Life's sea be all commotion,
When morning dawns o'er all below,
How calm will be the ocean.

We're one day nearer home above
The stars grow brighter o'er us,
The sunlight fades in peace and love,-
The land lies just before us.


Then, cares forgot and troubles o'er,
We'll join the anthems ringing
From angel tongues upon that shore,
That are with rapture singing.

We're one day nearer home above
The stars grow brighter o'er us,
The sunlight fades in peace and love,-
The land lies just before us.


Then, free from sin, our raptured soul
Will shout the Saviour's glory;
Forever and forever there
We'll chant the wondrous story.

We're one day nearer home above
The stars grow brighter o'er us,
The sunlight fades in peace and love,-
The land lies just before us.
