471 INTERCESSION 7s & ss. D. With Refrain William H. CALLCOTT and Felix
MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY (last 2 lines)
Lord, the cry
In heav'n, Thy dwell - ing - place on high. A- men.
*The small notes may be sung or not, as preferred
no pain in the Home-land, To which I'm drawing near. A-men.
2 My Lord is in the Homeland,
With angels bright and fair; No sinful thing nor evil,
Can ever enter there;
Is ringing in my ears,
My eyes are wet with tears.
3 For loved ones in the Homeland
Are waiting me to come
Invade their holy home:
O rest and peace above!
HUGH R. Hawais (?)
