Jordan's Strand (1459.) 748.

Wayfarers.

(1460.) 1 My days are giding swiftly by,

11 WAYFARERS in the wilderness, And I, a pilgrim stranger,

By morn, and noon, and even, Would not detain them as they fly,

Day after day, we journey on,
Those hours of toil and danger:

With weary feet towards heaven:
CHORUS.

CHORUS.
For, Oh! we stand on Jordan's strand; O land above! O land of love!
Our friends are passing over:

The glory shineth o'er thee;
And, just before, the shining shore

O Christ, our King! in mercy bring We may almost discover.

Us thither, we implore thee! 2 We'll gird cur loins, my brethren dear! 2 By day the cloud before us goes, Our heavenly home discerning;

By night the cloud of fire, Our absent Lord has left us word,

To guide us o'er the trackless waste, • Let every lamp be burning: ”

To Canaan ever nigher: CHORUS. -- For, Oh! we stand, etc.

CHORUS. – O land above! etc. 3 Should coming days be cold and dark, 13 Each morning find we, as he said, We need not cease our singing;

The dew of daily manna; That perfect rest nought can molest,

And ever, when a foe appears, Where golden harps are ringing:

Confronts him Christ, our Banner: CHORUS. - For, Oh ! we stand, etc.

CHORUS. --O land above! etc. 4 Let sorrow's rudest tempest blow, | 4 The sea was riven for our feet, Each cord on earth to sever;

And so shall be the river; [home, Our King says, “Come!”- and there's

And, by the King's highway brought
For ever, Oh! for ever! [our home, We'll praise his name for ever:
CHORUS. - For, Oh! we stand, etc.

CHORUS. --O land above ! etc.
David Nelson, 1835.

Nearer Home.

(1461.) 1 ONE sweetly solemn thought

Comes to me o'er and o'er ;
I'm nearer home to-day

Than e'er I've been before : 2 Nearer my Father's house,

Where the blest mansions be ;
Nearer the great white throne,

Nearer the crystal sea ;
3 Nearer the bound where we

Must lay our burdens down;
Nearer to leave the cross,

Nearer to gain the crown. 4 The waves of that deep sea

Roll dark before my sight,
But break, the other side,

Upon a shore of light. 5 Oh! if my mortal feet

Have almost gained the brink, . If I am nearer home

To-day than e'en I think : 6 Father ! perfect my trust,

That I may rest, in death,
Ou Christ, my Lord, alone,
And thus resign my breath.

Phæbe Cary, 1352, a.

750.
The Heavenly Home.

(1462.) 1 THERE is a blesséd home

Beyond this land of woe,
Where trials never come,

Nor tears of sorrow flow : 2 Where faith is lost in sight,

And patient hope is crowned,
And everlasting light

Its glory throws around. 3 Oh! joy all joys beyond,

To see the Lamb' who died,
And count each sacred wound

In hands, and feet, and side ! 4 To give to him the praise

Of every triumph won,
And sing, through endless days,

The great things he hath dono! 5 Look up, ye raints of God!

Nor fear to tread below
The path, your Saviour trod,

Of daily toil and woe. 6 Wait but a little while,

In uncomplaining love ;
His own most gracious smile
Shall welcome you above.

Henry W. Baker, 1362.

Rest for the Weary. (1463. / 75%.

The Saints in Glory. (1464.) 1 IN THE Christian's home in glory,

1 HARK! the sound of holy voices,
There remains a land of rest;

Chanting at the crystal sea, -
There my Saviour 's gone before mc, Alleluia ! alleluia !
To fulfill my soul's request.

Alleluia ! Lord ! to thee. . There is rest for the weary,

| 2 Multitude, which none can number,
There is rest for you,

Like the stars in glory stand,
On the other side of Jordan,

Clothed in white apparel, holding
In the sweet fields of Eden,

Palms of victory in their hands.
Where the tree of life is blooming,
There is rest for you.

3 They have come from tribulation, 2 He is fitting up my mansion,

And have washed their robes in blood, Which eternally shall stand,

Washed them in the blood of Jesus ; For my stay shall not be transient,

Tried they were, and firm they stood. In the holy, happy land.

4 Gladly, Lord ! with thee they suffered ; 3 Pain and sickness ne'er shall enter,

Gladly, Lord ! with thee they died, Grief nor woe my lot shall share ;

And, by death, to life immortal But, in that celestial centre,

They were born and glorified, Ia crown of life shall wear, 4 Death itself shall then be vanquished,

| 5 Now they reign in heavenly glory,

Now they walk in golden light,
And his sting chall be withdrawn :

Now they drink, as from a river,
Shout for gladness, O ye rausomed!
Hail with joy the rising morn.

Holy bliss and infinite. 5 Sing, Oh! sing, ye heirs of glory!

6 Love and peace they taste for ever, Shout your triumph as you go;

And all truth and knowledge see
Zion's gate will open for you,

In the beatific vision
You shall find an entrance through.

Of the blesséd Trinity.
William Hunter, 1857.
