When My Journey Past I Am


When my journey past,
I am safe at last
At the gate of life so fair,
Who will take my hand
In the spirit land?
Who will come to meet me there?

Refrain:
When the morning bright
Fills my soul with light,
Jesus, let me look on thee;
Loving Savior mine,
Let thy voice divine
Be the first to welcome me.

Friends that left me here,
Hearts that held me dear,
Call me to their home of song;
But, to find my rest,
Ever on thy breast,
Draw me with a love so strong. [Refrain]

To the golden shore
Thou wilt bear me o’er,
I shall feel thy tender care;
Thou wilt take my hand
In the spirit land,
Thou wilt bid me welcome there. [Refrain]
