Hymns From The Land Of Luther by Jane Borthwick

THE TWO JOURNEYS.

THE TWO JOURNEYS.

10,10,10,6

|Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked; between him that serveth God, and him that serveth him not.| -- Mal.3:18.

|Wohin, wohin?|

Möwes.

transl., Jane Borthwick, 1858

|Whither, oh! whither?| |With blind-folded eyes,

Down a wild torrent under stormy skies,

A gulf between two dark eternities,

Drifting, we know not where!|

|Whither oh! whither?| |To a land of light,

A home of loveliness serene and bright,

Joyfully hastening with steady flight,

Our hearts before us there!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Life's short pleasures past,

Hope's funeral knell the sound on every blast,

Heaven's entrance closed, to ruin hurried fast,

A leaf before the wind!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Pilgrims near their home,

No longer in a foreign land to roam;

Bright and beloved ones waiting till we come,

All sorrow left behind!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Who the path can say

To where some star will lend a cheering ray?

Or through earth's labyrinth direct our way,

So wildly sought in vain!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Christ the risen One,

Through life and death, hath now to glory gone,

He sends His messengers to lead us on --

The way is broad and plain!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Terrible reply

From yon white throne of judgment in the sky:

'Depart, accursed! from my presence fly

Forever' -- awful word!|

|Whither, oh! whither?| |Washed from earthly stain,

No more to wander or to fall again;

Forever with the Father to remain,

Forever with the Lord!|
