Title: Wanderers Below
Meter: 8 7 8 7 D
Topic: heaven, mortality, progression
Our home is a heavenly place.
Although we wander below
This world is but a holding space
Where we for a while can grow.
Though some might forget where we seek
It’s no less the place we’re from.
And even in our moments bleak.
Our Father beckons us come.
We cannot see our home for now
But by faith we know it’s there.
And while this life’s long row we plow
We reach it through earnest prayer.
As strangers far from loving smiles
A reunion we now crave.
Though sep’rate through the hours and miles.
Our love’s bonds we can now save.
Each neighbor we see day to day
Is wandering just the same.
And struggling to find the way
That reveals from whence they came.
It should not be a lonely road
But one that is marked and shared,
With cheerful ones to share the load
Who have for their return prepared.
