445 ~ I'm But a Stranger Here



1

I'm but a stranger here,
Heaven is my home;
Earth is a desert drear,
Heaven is my home;
Danger and sorrow stand
Round me on every hand;
Heaven is my Fatherland,
Heaven is my home.


2

What though the tempest rage,
Heaven is my home;
Short is my pilgrimage,
Heaven is my home.
Time's cold and wintry blast
Soon will be over-past;
I shall reach home at last;
Heaven is my home.


3

There at my Savior's side,
Heaven is my home;
I shall be glorified,
Heaven is my home.
There'll be the good and blest,
Those I love most and best,
There, too, I soon shall rest;
Heaven is my home.
