Representative Text

1 What tho' clouds are round about thee,
Earth seems dark and cold, and drear;
Surely there's a better country
Than we've ever dream'd of here.

Chorus:
Walk by faith a little longer,
Keep thy heart all free from guile,
Soon thou'lt hear the blessed Master
Say, "well done, come home, my child."

2 There no cloud shall dim the vision;
All is light and warmth and love;
There's a home for all the homeless
In "our Father's house" above. [Chorus]

3 What tho' none are left to love thee.
No one thou canst call thine own;
He has said, "I'm with thee alway;"
Fear not thou art not alone. [Chorus]
