Representative Text

1 Careworn traveler on life’s ocean,
Bound for yonder golden strand,
Look beyond the waves’ commotion,
Thou art nearing that blest land.

Refrain:
Nearing, nearing, nearing, nearing,
Thou art nearing that blest land.

2 Though the sky be dark and gloomy,
And the wild storms loudly roar,
Look with hopeful heart beyond them,
Thou art nearing yon blest shore. [Refrain]

3 Trust in God, and be not fearful—
He will lend a helping hand;
Let thy heart be light and cheerful,
Thou art near the better land. [Refrain]
