Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I've got a home in athat Rock,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
I've got a home in athat Rock,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
Between the earth and sky,
Thought I heard my Saviour cry,
I've got a home in athat Rock,
Don't you see?

2 Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I
Don't you see? Don't you see?
Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I
Don't you see? Don't you see?
Poor old Laz'rus, poor as I
When he died had a home on high.
He had a home in athat Rock,
Don't you see?

3 Rich man, Dives, lived so well,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
Rich man, Dives, lived so well,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
Rich man, Dives, lifec so well,
When he died he found a home in hell,
Had no home in athat Rock,
Don't you see?

4 God gave Noah the Rainbow sign,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
God gave Noah the Rainbow sign,
Don't you see? Don't you see?
God gave Noah the Rainbow sign,
No more water but fire next time,
Better get a home in athat Rock,
Don't you see?
