Hymn, ‘Wayfaring Stranger’

For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.  –Hebrews 11:14

Occupy until I come.   –Luke 19:13

This is a sweet old hymn, a folk hymn, with a message that we are but pilgrims and sojourners upon God’s earth, on our way to His Kingdom.

But the earth is the Lord’s, too; and when we finally get to where we’re going, we want to hear Him say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
