Longing for home

This life can seem a wilderness,
with Zion far ahead, –
by grace, like manna, Christ can bless –
he is the living Bread.

Though tasting much of heavenly grace
upon this pilgrim way,
yet we should long to see Christ’s face, –
he will return one day.

He wants his children to press on
and serve while living here,
empowered and strengthened, and to long
that soon he will draw near.

His coming may seem long-delayed,
we may not think it near;
but soon his power will be displayed,
his enemies will fear.     (CM)
