SAFELY HOME

I am home in heaven, dear ones;
All's so happy all's so bright!!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely at home in heaven at last.

SAFELY HOME

I am home in heaven, dear ones;
All's so happy all's so bright!!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely at home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder why I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love brightened
Every dark and fearful glade!

And He came Himself to meet me
On the way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idle stand;
Do your work while life remaineth
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting
Oh, the joy to see you come.
