One sweetly solemn thought

One sweetly solemn thought
comes to me o'er and o'er;
I am nearer home today
than I ever have been before.

Nearer my Father's house,
where the many mansions be;
nearer the great white throne,
nearer the crystal sea.

Nearer the bound of life
where we lay our burdens down;
nearer leaving the cross,
nearer gaining the crown.

But lying darkly between,
winding down through the night,
is the deep and unknown stream
to be crossed ere we reach the light.

Jesus, perfect my trust,
strengthen the grasp of my faith;
let me feel thee near when I stand
on the edge of the shore of death.

Feel thee near when my feet
are slipping over the brink;
for it may be I'm nearer home,
nearer now than I think.
