681. When I Can Read My Title Clear

1 When I can read my title clear
to mansions in the skies,
I'll bid farewell to every fear,
and wipe my weeping eyes,
and wipe my weeping eyes,
and wipe my weeping eyes;
I'll bid farewell to every fear,
and wipe my weeping eyes.

2 Should earth against my soul engage
and fiery darts be hurled,
then I can smile at Satan's rage,
and face a frowning world,
and face a frowning world,
and face a frowning world;
then I can smile at Satan's rage,
and face a frowning world.

3 Let cares like a wild deluge come,
and storms of sorrow fall!
May I but safely reach my home,
my God, my heaven, my all,
my God, my heaven, my all,
my God, my heaven, my all;
may I but safely reach my home,
my God, my heaven, my all.

4 There I shall bathe my weary soul
in seas of heavenly rest,
and not a wave of trouble roll
across my peaceful breast,
across my peaceful breast,
across my peaceful breast;
and not a wave of trouble roll
across my peaceful breast.
