Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones:

Oh, so happy and so bright!

There is perfect joy and beauty

In this everlasting light


All the pain and frief is over,

Every restless tossing passed:

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 illumined

Every dark and 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 one doubt or dread?


Then you miut 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 idly stand;

Do it now, while life remaineth

you shall rest in Jesus' land.


When that work is all completed,

He will gently call  you Home;

Oh, the rapture of the meeting,

Oh, the joy to see you come!
