Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative 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?
