A Letter to Pa

Pa, ma and JN's visit to Denmark on 5 June 2013
Dear Pa

It is soon 2 months... I still think of you... and my heart ached again... this song brought great comfort... J is well, soon starting school. He is very eager for school, and very eager to join scouts. I am well, and I know you are well too. I know we can trust in our good Lord Jesus...

I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger
While traveling through, this world of woe.
Yet there’s no sickness, toil nor danger
In that bright land, to which I go.
I’m going there to see my father
I’m going there no more to roam;
I’m just a going over Jordan
I’m just a going over home.
I know dark clouds will gather o’er me
I know my way is rough and steep;
Yet beauteous fields lie just before me
Where God’s redeemed, their vigils keep
I’m going there to see my mother
She said she’d meet me when I come;
I’m just a going over Jordan
I’m just a going over home.
I want to wear a crown of Glory
When I get home to that good land
I want to shout Salvation’s story
In concert with the Blood-Washed Band
I’m going there to meet my Saviour
To sing his praise forever more;
I’m just a going over Jordan
I’m just a going over home.
