No thanks, close this window
There's a place I've come to know
On my journey here below,
It's a place where there's a love
I've never known.
Though my flesh grows old and frail,
And my heart will one day fail,
I have found a faithful anchor
For my soul.
Toil and strife have followed me
Through my life, as all could see;
There were times when
Every friend just walked away.
But the Lord stood by my side,
Watching winds and waves subside,
When He said to them, "Be Still,"
and they obeyed.
My eyes close in prayer,
And I'm in Heaven,
With my Savior by my side
While I am there.
And He whispers soft and low
Things that only He could know,
And His gentle words
To my soul;
In that precious little place
I've come to know.
There'll come a time when I'll go home,
Leaving all behind I've known:
Those I've loved who shared their lives
With me a while.
They are treasures in God's sight,
So I know they'll be all right,
And I'll see them all again
In Heaven's light
