Hymnal: The Psalms of David #H52.VI (1789) Topics: Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 52 First Line: As when the weary trav'ller gains Lyrics: 27 As, when the weary trav'ller gains
The height of some o'er-looking hill,
His heart revives, if cross the plains
He eyes his home, tho' distant still.
28 Thus when the christian pilgrim views
By faith, his mansion in the skies,
The sight his fainting strength renews,
And wings his speed to reach the prize.
29 The thought of home his spirit cheers,
No more he grieves for troubles past;
Nor any future trial fears,
So he may save arrive at last.
30 'Tis there, he says, I am to dwell
With Jesus, in the realms of day;
Then I shall bid my cares farewel,
And he will wipe my tears away.
31 Jesus, on thee my hope depends,
To lead me on to thine abode;
Assur'd our home will make amends
For all our toil while on the road.
32 Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Amen, Amen.
Home in view, Amen
