1
O LORD , how blest our journey,
Though here on earth we roam,
Who in the Father's favour
Now find our spirit's home:
For where Thou now art sitting
By faith we've found repose,
Free to look up to heaven,
Since our blest Head arose.
2
In spirit there already,
Soon we ourselves shall be
In soul and body perfect,
All glorified, with Thee.
Thy Father's love sustains us
Along the pilgrim way;
Thy Father's house, the dwelling
Made ready for that day.
3
The Comforter, now present,
Assures us of Thy love;
He is the blessèd Earnest
Of glory there above;
The river of God's pleasure
Is what sustains us now,
Till Thy new Name's imprinted
On every sinless brow.
4
Lord, we await Thy glory;
We have no home but there,
Where all Thine own together
Thy joy with Thee shall share.
No place can fully please us
Where Thou, O Lord, are not,
In Thee, and with Thee, ever
Is found, by grace, our lot.
