Make Me a Stranger

Make me a stranger on earth, dear Savior,
Make me a stranger more like Thee.
Help me keep my focus on heavenly treasures,
And not on earthly things may it be.

Lord, lead me onward as a pilgrim
Bound for heaven never to roam.
Make me a stranger on earth, dear Savior,
Till I see my heavenly home.

Lord, I’ve found myself loving earthly treasures:
Simple pleasures taking your place.
Nothing can measure to heavenly treasures:
Hearing “Well done,” and seeing Your face.

Lord, lead me onward as a pilgrim
Bound for heaven never to roam.
Make me a stranger on earth, dear Savior,
Till I see my heavenly home.

  1. Thanks so much for stopping by my Show and Tell yesterday. I love having new visitors. Please feel free to come back any time.

    I love the pictures of your plaques!

  2. That truly is a great song– Make me a stranger on Earth. I think that all too often we’re too comfortable here, that we love this world because of how easy our lives are.

    I can’t help but think of how much Paul and the Apostles that were dying for their faith longed for the other world, and lived in the other world simply because this world wasn’t getting in the way.

    How much we need to focus on Heaven above, and realize that it is so much better than the world below.

I love hearing from you and will approve your comment ASAP.
