Oer The Billows Light Is Streaming

O’er the billows light is streaming,
From the harbor of the blest,
Where that radiance is beaming,
By and by we’ll sweetly rest.

From the happy coast of heaven
Light is shining while we roam,
‘Tis a beacon God has given,
Guiding life’s way-farers home.

When our perils and privation
On the waves of time are o’er,
With glad songs of exultation,
We shall moor by yonder shore. [Refrain]

Swiftly onward we are gliding,
To the bright immortal land,
In our Saviour’s care confiding,
We shall reach that blessed strand. [Refrain]
