S.M. (FE 266)
"We wept when we remember Zion”
- Ps. 137:1

1.  FAR from my heavenly home, 

     Far from my Father's breast,

     Fainting I cry blest Spirit, come 

     And speed me to my test.

2.  Upon the willows long

     My harp has silent hung

     How should I sing a cheerful song, 

     Till Thou inspire my tongue?

3.  My spirit homeward turns,

     And fain would thither flee:

     My heart, O Zion, droops and yearns 

     When I remember thee.

4.  To thee, to thee I press,

     A dark and toilsome road:

     When shall I pass the wilderness, 

     And reach the saints’ abode?

5.  God of my life be near:

     On Thee my hopes I cast

     Oh guide me through the desert here 

     And bring me home at last.  Amen
