161 SWEET HOME
to the Cooper book version of this tune
Mid scenes of confusion and creature complaints,
How sweet to my soul is communion with saints;
To find at the banquet of mercy there's room,
And feel in the presence of Jesus at home.
Home, home, sweet, sweet home;
Prepare me, dear Savior, for glory, my home.
Sweet bonds that unite all the children of peace,
And thrice precious Jesus, whose love cannot cease;
Though oft from Thy presence in sadness I roam,
And feel in the preence of Jesus at home.
I sigh from this body of sin to be free,
Which hinders my joy and communion with Thee;
Though now my temptations like billows may foam,
All, all will be peace when I'm with Thee at home.
