My Soul There Is A Country


Charles Hubert Hastings Parry


Words by Henry Vaughan


My soul, there is a country
  Far beyond the stars,
Where stands a winged sentry
  All skilful in the wars:

There, above noise and danger
  Sweet Peace sits crowned with smiles
And One, born in a manger
  Commands the beauteous files.

He is thy gracious friend
  And, O my soul, awake!
Did in pure love descend
  To die here for thy sake.

If thou canst get but thither,
  There grows the flow'r of Peace,
The Rose that cannot wither,
  Thy fortress and thy ease.

Leave then thy foolish ranges,
  For none can thee secure
But One who never changes,
  Thy God, thy life, thy cure.


My soul there is a country - Parry

Created 19-Feb-11
