Hymn: TLH 660, st. 1,2: I’m But a Stranger Here

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



1. I’m but a stranger here, 
Heav’n is my home; 
Earth is a desert drear, 
Heav’n is my home. 
Danger and sorrow stand 
Round me on every hand; 
Heav’n is my fatherland, 
Heav’n is my home. 

2. What though the tempest rage, 
Heav’n is my home; 
Short is my pilgrimage, 
Heav’n is my home; 
And time’s wild wintry blast 
Soon shall be overpast; 
I shall reach home at last, 
Heav’n is my home.
