Until Then (the hope of a Christian)

The words to this hymn are so beautiful. . and such a comfort to me!

 

    My heart can sing when I pause to remember
    A heartache here is but a stepping stone
    Along a trail that’s winding always upward,
    This troubled world is not my final home.

      But until then my heart will go on singing,
      Until then with joy I’ll carry on,
      Until the day my eyes behold the city,
      Until the day God calls me home.

    The things of earth will dim and lose their value
    If we recall they’re borrowed for awhile;
    And things of earth that cause the heart to tremble,
    Remembered there will only bring a smile.

      But until then my heart will go on singing,
      Until then with joy I’ll carry on,
      Until the day my eyes behold the city,
      Until the day God calls me home.

       

    This weary world with all its toil and struggle
    May take its toll of misery and strife;
    The soul of man is like a waiting falcon;
    When it’s released, it’s destined for the skies.

     

      But until then my heart will go on singing,
      Until then with joy I’ll carry on,
      Until the day my eyes behold the city,
      Until the day God calls me home.
