Safely Home

I am now at home in heaven

All's so happy, all so bright!

There is perfect joy and beauty

In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief are over

Every restless tossing past;

I am now in peace forever,

Safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly

Trod the Valley of the Shade?

Oh! but Jesus' love illumined

Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me

In that 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 the meeting!

Oh, the joy to see you come!
