1015. Come This Way

1. As I drift upon life’s billows,
Longing for the light of day;
I can almost hear from Heaven,
Loved ones singing, Come this way.

Come this way, come this way,
Here is light, and joy, and peace;
Come this way, come this way,
And your sorrows all shall cease.

2. And methinks I hear my mother,
Calling from the other shore,
With a voice so sweet and tender,
Far above the billows’ roar: [Refrain]

3. Hark! I hear the voice of Jesus,
Wafted from a heav’nly land;
I can almost see His glory,
And the beckoning of His hand. [Refrain]

4. Oh! the bliss, the joy of meeting
Loved ones in that mighty throng;
Joining with them in their singing,
Of the everlasting song. [Refrain]
