First Line: Heavenly helper, friend divine
Last Line: Lord, we have no home but thee!


HEAVENLY Helper, Friend divine,
Friend of all men, therefore mine,
Let my heart as Thy heart be!
Breathe Thy living breath through reel
Only at Thy 1ove's pure tide
Human thirst is satisfied:
He who fills his chalice there,
Fills, with thirstier souls to share.
Undefiled One, who dost win
All Thine own from paths of sin,
Never let me dread to go
Where is guilt, or want, or woe!
If another lose the way,
My feet also go astray:
Sleepless Watcher, lead us back,
Safe into the homeward track!
As a bird unto its nest,
Flies the tired soul to Thy breast.
Let not one an alien be!
Lord, we have no home but Thee!
