"Safely Home" I am home in Heaven, dear ones; Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light. All the pain and suffering 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 illumined every dark and fearful glade. And He came Himself to meet me In that 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 Earth's shadows, 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 remaineth You shall rest in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you in; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you again!
