This is the hymn that comes to mind when I am traveling or moving. “Home and heaven are within thee” entreats us to remember what’s constant when the sands are shifting beneath our feet.
Pilgrim on Earth
Music by H. Walford Davies
Words by P.M.
Pilgrim on earth, home and heaven are within thee
Air of the ages and child of the day
Cared for, watched over, beloved and protected
Walk thou with courage each step of the way
Truthful and steadfast though trials betide thee
Ever one thing do thou ask of thy Lord
Grace to go forward wherever he may guide thee
Gladly obeying the call of this word
Healed is thy hardness, his love hath dissolved it
Full is the promise, the blessing how kind
So shall his tenderness teach thee compassion
So all the merciful mercy shall find.
