Stranger in a Strange Land
Artist: Gerry Rzeppa
I'm a servant of Christ Jesus, (James 1:1)
God knows all my failings; (1 John 1:8)
But He's faithful in His mercy (1 John 1:9)
To forgive me all my sins...

For I know; yes I know
'Tis a gracious Lord I live for - (Joel 2:13)
At the right hand of the throne (Romans 8:34)
Interceding for His own. (Hebrews 7:25)

I'm a pilgrim on a journey, (Hebrews 11:13)
God knows I get weary; (1 Peter 2:11)
But His goodness will sustain me (Psalm 55:22)
Though I'm far away from home...

For I know; yes I know
'Tis a blessed hope I look for - (Titus 2:13)
When the clouds burst open wide (Acts 1:9-11)
And we see Jesus up on high. (Revelation 19:11-16)

I'm a stranger in a strange land. (Exodus 2:22)
God, I've been so lonely; (Psalm 102:7)
Yet the suff'rings of this present (Romans 8:18)
Are not worthy to compare...

For I know; yes I know
'Tis a better place I go to - (Revelation 21:1-5)
In the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52)
Meeting Jesus in the sky. (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

In My Father's house there are many mansions; (John 14:2)
If it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
