Էջ 113 - Worn and weary, oft the pilgrim Hails the setting of the sun ; For the goal is one day nearer, ^ And his journey nearly done. Thus we feel when o'er life's desert, Heart and sandal sore we roam ; As the twilight gathers o'er us, We are one day nearer home.
Էջ 113 - Heart and sandal worn, we roam; As the twilight gathers o'er us, We are one day nearer home. Nearer home! Yes, one day nearer, To our Father's house on high ; To the green fields and the fountains, Of the land beyond the sky. For the heavens grow brighter o'er us, And the lamps hang in the dome ; And our tents are pitched still closer, For we're one day nearer home.
