Sweet Heaven 278t

Tune: Elias Lafayette King, 1850
Alto: Mrs. Anna L. (Cooper) Blackshear, 1902
Lyrics: Samuel Ecking, 1778
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
The Lord, who built the earth and sky,
In mercy stoops to hear thy cry;
His promise all may freely claim,
Ask, and receive in Jesus' name.


O heav'n, sweet heav'n, when shall I see?
O when shall I get there?

Without reserve give Christ your heart;
Let Him His righteousness impart;
Then all things else He'll freely give;
With Him you all things shall receive.
