This song, written by Stuart Hamblen, has been a great encouragement to me lately.
My heart can sing when I pause to remember:
A heartache here is but a stepping stone
Along the trail that’s winding always upward
This troubled world is not my final home.
But until then, my heart will go on singing.
Until then, with joy I’ll carry on,
Until the day my eyes behold the city,
Until the day God calls me home.
The things of earth will dim and lose their value
If we recall they’re borrowed for a while
And things of earth that cause my heart to tremble
Remembered there will only bring a smile
This weary world with all its toil and struggle
May take its toll of misery and strife
The soul of man is like a waiting falcon
When it’s released, it’s destined for the skies.
Here’s a YouTube video of David Phelps singing an arrangement of this song at the Brooklyn Tabernacle.
