1  The Haven, the Haven,
Where hearts may anchored lie:
There's no cloud in the Haven,
But ever sun-bright sky.
I'm yearning for the Haven,
Far out on this wild sea;
My bark may ride in safety,
In God's Eternity.

2  There's no storm in the Haven,
No angry billows roar;
There's naught but gentle wavelets
That kiss the sunny shore.
I still dream of the Haven,
I long to feel its peace;
O Wind! blow straight for the Haven,
That life's rough voyage may cease.

3  I see the lights of the Haven,
While here afar I roam;
I long for the rest of the Haven,
I long for the promised home.
There's welcome in the Haven,
All sighing shall cease;
God! steer us straight to the Haven
Of Thine Almighty Peace.
