Representative Text

1 Not far from the kingdom of light and joy,
Not far from the heav’nly home;
Astray in the darkness of gloom and sin,
O why will ye choose to roam?

Refrain:
Not far from the Kingdom! O why will ye roam,
In dreary wild woodlands of sin?
So near to the kingdom of home, sweet home,
Why will ye not enter in?

2 Not far from the kingdom of peace and rest,
Not far from the promised land;
Aloft on the mount of self-righteousness,
O why will ye ling’ring stand? [Refrain]

3 Not far from the kingdom of joy and love,
Not far from Salvation’s shore;
Why drift on to death while a Saviour’s near
To rescue you evermore? [Refrain]
