The Homeland! O the Homeland!

Author: Hugh R. Haweis Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 164 hymnals Matching Instances: 21 Lyrics: 1. The Homeland! O the Homeland! The land of souls free born! No gloomy night is known there, but only fadeless morn: I’m sighing for that country, my heart is aching here; There is no pain in the Homeland to which I’m drawing near. 2. My Lord is in the Homeland, with angels bright and fair; No sinful thing nor evil, can ever enter there; The music of the ransomed is ringing in my ears, And when I think of the Homeland, my eyes are wet with tears. 3. For loved ones in the Homeland are waiting me to come, Where neither death nor sorrow invades their holy home: O dear, dear native country! O rest and peace above! Christ bring us all to the Homeland, of His eternal love. Used With Tune: HOMELAND (Sullivan)

For thee, O dear, dear country

Author: St. Bernard of Cluny; John Mason Neale Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 251 hymnals Matching Instances: 6 Lyrics: For thee, O dear, dear country, Mine eyes their vigils keep; For very love beholding Thy holy name, they weep. The mention of thy glory Is unction to the breast, And medicine in sickness, And love, and life, and rest. 467 O one, O only mansion! O Paradise of joy! Where tears are ever banished And smiles have no alloy; Thy loveliness oppresses All human thought and heart, And none, O Peace, O Sion, Can sing thee as thou art. With jasper glow thy bulwarks, Thy streets with emeralds blaze; The sardius and the topaz Unite in thee their rays; Thine ageless walls are bonded With amethyst unpriced; The saints build up thy fabric, And the corner-stone is Christ. The cross is all thy splendour, The Crucified thy praise; His laud and benediction Thy ransomed people raise: Upon the Rock of Ages They build thy holy tower; Thine is the victor's laurel, And thine the golden dower. O sweet and blessèd country, The home of God's elect! O sweet and blessèd country, That eager hearts expect! Jesus, in mercy bring us To that dear land of rest; Who art, with God the Father, And Spirit, ever blest. Amen.

The son of Consolation!

Author: Maud Coote Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 14 hymnals Matching Instances: 2 Lyrics: The son of Consolation! Of Levi's priestly line, Filled with the Holy Spirit And fervent faith divine, With lowly self oblation, For Christ an offering meet, He laid his earthly riches At the apostles' feet. The son of Consolation! O name of soothing balm! It fell on sick and weary Like breath of heaven's own calm! And the blest son of comfort, With fearless, loving hand, The Gentiles' great apostle Led to the faithful band. The son of Consolation! Drawn near unto his Lord, He won the martyr's glory, And passed to his reward. With him is faith now ended, For ever lost in sight, But love, made perfect, fills him With praise, and joy, and light. The son of Consolation! Lord, hear our humble prayer, That each of us thy children Such blessed name may bear! That we, sweet comfort shedding O'er homes of pain and woe, Midst sickness and in prisons, May seek thee here below. The sons of Consolation! O what the bliss will be, When Christ the King shall tell them "Ye did it unto me"! The merciful and loving The Lord of life shall own, And as his priceless jewels Shall set them round his throne. Amen. Topics: Holy Days St. Barnabas Used With Tune: HOMELAND
