Heavenly Home

We've no abiding city here

Tune: ANDRE
Published in 174 hymnals

Full Text

1. We've no abiding city here;
Sad truth, were this to be our home;
But let this thought our spirits cheer,
We seek a city yet to come,
We seek a city yet to come.

2. We've no abiding city here,
We seek a city out of sight;
Zion its name, the Lord is there,
It shines with ever lasting light,
It shines with ever lasting light.

3. O sweet abode of peace and love,
Where pilgrims freed from toil, are blest!
Had I the pinions of a dove,
I'd fly to thee, and be at rest,
I'd fly to thee, and be at rest.

4. But hush, my soul! nor dare repine;
The time my God appoints is best;
While here, to do his will be mine,
And his to fix my time of rest,
And his to fix my time of rest.

For some time he preached in two unconsecrated buildings in Dublin, Plunket Street, and the Bethesda, and then, having seceded from the Established Church, he erected places of worship at Athy, Portarlington, Wexford, &c, in which he conducted divine worship and preached.
