2 Corinthians 5:6-8 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Our earthly homes are simple things
Of plaster and of board;
Sometimes as humble as the nest
Built by a wildwood bird.
And yet through all our lives our hearts
Cling to the childhood home
Of hallowed, precious memories -
No matter where we roam.
