When We Are Thinking Of Heaven And Home


When we are thinking of Heaven and home,
He is near,
And when we are walking the valley of gloom,
He is near us then.

Refrain:
O what a friend He is to me,
Waiting to hear the faintest call;
Ever unchanging and ever to be
Close to us all.

When the poor soul by temptation is tried,
He is near,
And when it is plunged ‘neath the oncoming tide,
He is near us then. [Refrain]

When in the soul doubts and fears do arise,
He is near,
And if in our sorrow the soul to Him cries,
He is near us then. [Refrain]
