Mid scenes of confusion
’Mid scenes of confusion and creature complaint,
How sweet to the soul is communion with saints;
To find at the banquet of mercy there’s room,
And feel in the presence of Jesus at home!
Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me dear Savior, for Heaven, my home.
Sweet bonds that unite all the children of peace!
And thrice precious Jesus, whose love cannot cease!
Tho’ oft from Thy presence in sadness I roam,
I long to behold Thee in glory at home.
While here in the valley of conflict I stay,
O give me submission, and strength as my day;
In all my afflictions to Thee would I come,
Rejoicing in hope of my glorious home.
