NEARER HOME WITH EACH PASSING DAY......

NEARER HOME

One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er:
I am nearer Home today,
Than I ever have been before!

Nearer my Fathers house
Where many mansions be,
Nearer the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea!

Nearer the bound of life
Where we lay our burdens down,
Nearer leaving the cross,
Nearer gaining the crown!

But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night,
Is the silent unknown stream,
That leads at last to the light.

Oh, if my mortal feet
Have almost gained the brink,
If I am nearer Home,
Even today than I think,

Father, perfect my trust;
Let my spirit feel in death
That these feet are firmly set,
On the rock of a living Faith.
