Song # 21676

rest at home



whate’er my afflictions or trials may be,
i want to live faithful, my savior, to thee,
to walk as a christian, my temper subdued,
and feel, through thy mercy, in spirit renewed.

refrain

home, home, home, sweet, sweet home,
i know there is rest with thy people at home,
i know there is rest with thy people at home.

though dark is my path in this valley of sin,
o give me the light of thy comfort within,
to shield me from danger wherever i roam,
and guide me at last to thy people at home.

refrain

i want to be humble, resigned to thy will,
in sunshine or tempest to follow thee still,
yet, lured by the tempter, how often i roam,
forgetful, alas! of my god and my home.

refrain

no parent so tender, so friend is so dear,
no voice like my savior’s can banish my fear;
by faith in thy promise to thee i will come,
o, give me a place with thy people at home.

refrain

when shall i rise from this desert of gloom,
beyond the deep shadows that darken the tomb,
in eden, dear eden, transported to roam,
and sing hallelujahs with angels at home?

refrain
