Welcome quote


"These hymns have brought cheer in the day of trial; comfort in the time of bereavement; encouragement to live a life of greater devotion to Christ; rebuke to our coldness and oft backslidings; stimulus to enter and continue in sacrificial service for our blessed Lord and Master; and inspiration and guidance in our adoring worship and praise to the Father, through the Son, and in the power of the Holy Spirit!"
- Alfred Gibbs (from 'Hymns: Their Use and Abuse')

I'm but a stranger here - Heaven is my home

(First line: I’m but a stranger here)

Aku orang asing;
Syurga rumah ku!
Dunia padang gurun;
Syurga rumah ku!
Bahaya, sengsara
Mengelilingi ku;
Syurga tanahair,
Syurga rumah ku.

Walau ribut kencang?
Syurga rumah ku!
Singkat perjalanan;
Syurga rumah ku!
Musim salji dahsyat;
Pastikan berlalu;
Ku kan sampai rumah;
Syurga rumah ku.

Sisi Jurus’lamat;
Syurga rumah ku!
Ku kan dimulia;
Syurga rumah ku!
Yang baik dan berkat,
M’reka yang ku kasih,
Akan ku berehat;
Syurga rumah ku.

Ku takkan merungut;
Syurga rumah ku!
Apa bahagian ku;
Syurga rumah ku!
Ku akan berdiri
Di tangan kanan Lord;
Syurga tanahair:
Syurga rumah ku.
