Every day brings us nearer home

Full Text

1 Ev’ry day brings us nearer to the better land,
Nearer home, nearer home,
Ev’ry day brings us nearer to the Lord’s right hand,
Nearer home, nearer home,
We will sing and rejoice while the days are quickly passing,
Ever seeking to merit our Savior’s choicest blessing;
For we know ev’ry day brings us nearer home,
Nearer home, nearer home.

2 Ev’ry day brings us nearer to the land of love,
Nearer home, nearer home,
Ev’ry day brings us nearer to the fields above,
Nearer home, nearer home,
Oh, the way oftentimes may seem lonely, dark, and dreary,
And our faith seem so small, and our feet have grown so weary;
Yet we know ev’ry day brings us nearer home,
Nearer home, nearer home.

3 Ev’ry day brings us nearer to the pearly gates,
Nearer home, nearer home,
Ev’ry day brings us nearer where the Savior waits,
Nearer home, nearer home,
Oh, the joy we shall know when we reach the land immortal,
And have sung the new song far beyond death’s chilling portal;
For we know ev’ry day brings us nearer home,
Nearer home, nearer home.
