Psalm 84:7

  Strength for the journey upward,
    To the realms of light and love;
God’s strength, in the might of the Spirit,
    Is my privilege to prove.

  To leave the world and its shadows
    In the distance far behind;
Where they grope in the blackness and darkness,
    Who are lame and halt and blind.

  To get nearer the home, where the music
    Is heard thro’ eternal day;
To get nearer the Father’s presence,
    Where His love beams bright alway.

  Thus pants my longing spirit;
    And Jesus shall bring me there;
  Nor swollen my feet with the journey,
    Nor my clothes the worse of the wear.
