235 LONG SOUGHT HOME
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Jerusalem! My happy home!
Oh, how I long for thee!
When will my sorrows have an end?
Thy joys when shall I see?
Home, sweet home, my long-sought home,
My home in heav'n above.
Thy walls are all of precious stones,
Most glor'ous to behold!
Thy gates are richly set with pearl,
Thy streets are paved with gold.
My friends, I bid you all adieu;
I leave you in God's care;
And if I here no more see you,
Go on; I'll meet you there.
