Christ My Song - 932
We're not of this world that fadeth away - Wilderness song
(James George Deck/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
1. We're not of this world that fadeth away,
we're not of the night, but children of day;
the chains that once bound us, by Jesus are riven,
we're strangers on earth, and our home is in heaven, PDF - Midi
2. our path is most rugged, and dangerous too,
a wide, trackless waste our journey lies through,
but the Pillar of Cloud that shows us our way
is our sure light by night, and shades us by day.
3. Our Shepherd is still our Guardian and Guide,
before us he goes to help and provide;
we drink of the streams from the Rock that was riven,
our bread is the Manna that came down from heaven.
4. 'Mid mightiest foes, most feeble are we;
yet trembling before our great Leader they flee:
The Lord is our Banner – the battle is his –
the weakest of saints more than conqueror is.
5. Soon, soon shall we enter our own promised land,
before his bright throne in glory shall stand;
our song then for ever and ever shall be,
