Wayfaring Stranger

I know dark clouds will gather 'round me
I know my way is rough and steep;
But beauteous fields lie just beyond me
Where souls redeemed their vigil keep.

I want to wear a crown of glory
When I get home to that bright land
I want to shout Salvation's story
In concert with that bloodwashed band.

I'm going there to meet my Saviour
To sing His praise forevermore.
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home.

Wow. This is especially meaningful for what we are going through right now. Thanks goodness of our knowledge, and imagine the joy Mitz has right now.

Have you heard the BYU Choirs CD "The Road Home"? They have an incredible arrangement of this song. Good choice :)
