Sung to tune of Cleansing Fountain in B.F. White Sacred Harp Cooper Revision (382)
1) There is a house not made with hands
Eternal and on high:
And here my spirit waiting stands,
Till God shall bid it fly.
3) ‘Tis he, by his almighty grace
That forms thee fit for heaven:
And as an earnest of the place
Has his own Spirit given.
5) “Tis pleasant to believe thy grace,
But we had rather see:
We would be absent from the flesh,
And present Lord, with thee.
From Lloyd, Benjamin, The Primitive Hymns, Rocky Mount, North Carolina: The Primitive Hymns Corporation, 1975.
