I will up sail for the far haven.
To seek the land of peace and tarry no longer here in the dark.
My heart is set and bent on gaining that country.
It is not given me to know the length of my journey or even the way of it.
But setting aside what is behind I go forward to seek what is ahead.
And when the turn of time brushes the darkness from my eyes.
A hand will grasp mine drawing me through the vale and into everlasting sunlight.
Joy and the haven will be mine.
Face to face with my Lord, to pay homage to the Everlasting King.
