Safely Home

Source unknown

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;Oh, so happy and so bright!There is perfect joy and beautyIn this everlasting light.

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

Did you wonder I so calmlyTrod the valley of the shade?Oh! But Jesus' love illuminedEvery 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, 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 idly stand;Do it now, while life remainethYou shall rest in Jesus' land.

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