My Home (Lisbon) 51

Tune: Arranged by C. F. Letson, 1869
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Samuel Stennett, 1787
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
On Jordanís stormy banks I stand,
And cast a wishful eye
To Canaanís fair and happy land,
Where my possessions lie.

Chorus:

Donít you feel like going home;
My home it is in the promised land,
And I feel like going home.
Yes, I feel like going home;
My home it is in the promised land,
And I feel like going home.

O the transporting raptírous scene,
That rises to my sight!
Sweet fields arrayed in living green,
And rivers of delight.

(Chorus)
