O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

One Sweetly Solemn Thought

Phoebe Cary

Philip Phillips

A. H. M. in 1997

One sweetly solemn thought
Comes to me o'er and o'er;
I'm nearer home today, today,
Than I have been before:

Nearer my Father's house,
Where many mansions be;
Nearer the great white throne today,
Nearer the crystal sea:

Nearer the bound of life
Where I lay my burdens down;
Nearer to leave the cross today,
And nearer to the crown.

Be near me when my feet
Are slipping o'er the brink;
For I am nearer home today,
Perhaps, than now I think!

Nearer my home, Nearer my home,
Nearer my home today, today,
Than I have been before.
