That Sweet Home

"That Sweet Home," Cooper Revision of The Sacred Harp, pg. 549:

When we have crossed the stream of death,
O let us sing and praise the Lord,
For Jesus Christ the Son of God,
Came down to earth to die for me.

I love to tell of that sweet home,
O glory to the Lamb of God.

For some sweet time I'm going home,
To join the praise of endless joy,
O, this I know, I'm on my way,
To that sweet home prepared for me.

Added April 2017: This was one of my Father's favorite songs, and it seems he enjoyed it more and more the closer he got to "That Sweet Home."
