The sea turns, and it churns,

And advances toward shore,

Pushing, and rolling, then dancing away,

As a puppy that’s “yelpy”

And frisks toward the door,

Then toward you, again,

In its moments of play.    – eab, 3/78

“I’m But a Stranger Here”


I’m but a stranger here, Heav’n is my home;
Earth is a desert drear, Heav’n is my home.
Danger and sorrow stand round me on every hand;
Heav’n is my fatherland, Heav’n is my home.


Short is my pilgrimage, Heav’n is my home;
Time’s cold and wild wintry blast soon shall be over past;
I shall reach home at last, Heav’n is my home.


There at my Savior’s side Heav’n is my home;
I shall be glorified, Heav’n is my home.
There are the good and blest, those I loved most and best;
There, too, I soon shall rest, Heav’n is my home.


Therefore I murmur not, Heav’n is my home;
Whate’er my earthly lot, Heav’n is my home;
And I shall surely stand there at my Lord’s right hand.
Heav’n is my fatherland, Heav’n is my home.


Thomas Rawson Taylor died this date 3/7/1835, in Airedale, England.  He was born 5/9/1807, in Ossett, Yorkshire, England.
