Safely Home

by Author Unknown


I am here in heaven, dear ones;

Oh, so happy and so bright.

There is perfect joy and beauty

in this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,

every restless tossing passed;

I am now at peace forever,

safely home in heaven at last.

Did you wonder why I so calmly

Trod the valley of the shade?

Oh, but Jesus' love illuminated

Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me

in the way so hard to tread;

And with Jesus' arm to lean on,

could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,

For I love you dearly still.

Try to look beyond death's shadow;

Pray to trust our Father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,

So you must not idly stand.

Do it now, while life remains;

You shall remain in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,

He will gently call you home,

Oh, the rapture of that meeting;

Oh, the joy to see you come!
