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?

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]
