HYMN 368

H.C 239 C.M (FE 390)

1.  JERUSALEM, my happy home

     Name ever dear to me!

     When shall my labours have an 

     end in joy, and peace, in Thee?

2.  When shall these eyes thy 

     heaven-built walls 

     And pearly gates behold

     Thy bulwarks with salvation strong.

     And streets of shinning gold?

3.  There happier bowers than Eden‘s 

     bloom Nor sin, nor sorrow know

     Blest seats, through rude and 

     stormy scenes.

     I onward press to you.

4.  Why should I shrink at pain and woe 

     Or feel, at death, dismay? 

     I've Canaan's goodly land in view 

     And realms of endless day.

5.  Apostles, martyrs, prophets there 

     Around my Saviour stood

     And soon my friends in Christ below 

     Will join the glorious band.

6.  Jerusalem, my happy home

     My soul still pants for thee!

     Then shall my labours have an end,

     When I thy joy shall see.  Amen
