Safely Home

Safely Home

I am now at home in heaven; all’s so happy, all so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty, in this everlasting light.

All the pain & grief are over, Every restless tossing past;
I am now at peace forever, Safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly trod the Valley of the Shade?
Oh! But Jesus’ love illuminated every dark & fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me, in that way so hard to tread;
and with Jesus’ arm to lean on, Could I have doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows, pray to trust our father’s will.

There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idle still,
Do you work while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.

When the work is all completed, He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of the meeting!
Oh, the joy to see you come!
