352- One Sweetly Solemn Thought

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me oer and oer;
Nearer to my home today am I
Than eer Ive been before.

2
Nearer my Fathers house,
Where many mansions be;
Nearer today, the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea.

3
Nearer the bound of life
Where burdens are laid down;
Nearer to leave the heavy cross,
Nearer to gain the crown.

4
But lying darkly between,
Winding down through the night,
There rolls the deep and unknown stream
That leads at last to light.

5
Father, perfect my trust;
Strengthen my power of faith!
Nor let me stand, at last, alone
Upon the shore of death.
