Thou wayfaring Jesus, a pilgrim and stranger,Exiled from heaven by love at Thy birth:Exiled again from Thy rest in the manger,A fugitive child ’mid the perils of earth—Cheer with Thy fellowship all who are weary,Wandering far from the land that they love;Guide every heart that is homeless and dreary,Safe to its home in Thy presence above.
... Henry van Dyke (1852-1933), The Poems of Henry Van Dyke, New York: C. Scribner’s Sons, 1920, p. 230
