Lily-of-the-Valley and with Fade, fade, each earthly joy and We’ve journey’d many a day

Fade, fade, each earthly joy,
Jesus is mine;
Break ev’ry tender tie,
Jesus is mine;
Dark is the wilderness,
Earth has no resting-place,
Jesus alone can bless,
Jesus is mine!

Tempt not my soul away,
Jesus is mine;
Here would I ever stay,
Jesus is mine;
Perishing things of clay,
Born but for one brief day,
Pass from my heart away,
Jesus is mine!

Farewell, ye dreams of night,
Jesus is mine;
Lost in this dawning light,
Jesus is mine;
All that my soul has tried,
Left but a dismal void,
Jesus hath satisfied,
Jesus is mine!

Farewell, mortality,
Jesus is mine;
Welcome, eternity,
Jesus is mine;
Welcome, oh, loved and blest,
Welcome, sweet scenes of rest,
Welcome, my Savior’s breast,
Jesus is mine!

Mrs. Catherine J. Bonar
We’ve journey’d many a day
Upon  an ocean wide,
Amid the mist and spray
Of many a surging tide;
But, lo! the land is near!
For just beyond the foam
I see it bright and clear,
The light of home, sweet home.

We’ve had our storms of doubt,
Our rains of bitter tears,
Our fightings fierce without,
Within our anxious fears;
But, lo! the storms are past,
They cannot reach us more;
We’ve sighted land at last,
The blessed stormless shore.

O land of calmest rest,
Where suns no more go down!
O haven of the blest,
With bliss and glory crown’d!
No more the storm, the dark,
The breakers and the foam,
No more the wail, for hark!
We hear the songs of home.

There’s a light upon the shore, brother,
It flashes from the stand;
The night is almost o’er, brother,
The haven’s just at hand.

Rev. Henry Burton, M. A.

  1. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. And thanks for posted Mrs. Bonar's beautiful hymn. Your post caught my eye because I posted an article on the hymn this morning. Other things fade into insignificance, as we come into closer fellowship with Christ. God bless.
