I Have A Sweet Hope That In Heaven Above-1


I have a sweet hope that in heaven above
The Savior is waiting for me,-
That, ransomed and saved by his mercy and love,
My friend and my portion he’ll be.

Refrain:
Jesus, dear Jesus, will welcome me,
Welcome me, welcome me;
Jesus, dear Jesus, will welcome me
Home to the beautiful land.

In midst of the troubles and sorrows I bear,
By faith I repose on his breast;
I know he will make my afflictions his care,
And bring me at last to his rest. [Refrain]

He’s gone to prepare for his people a place-
A mansion of glory on high;
And when I shall finish my journey and race,
He’ll give me a home in the sky. [Refrain]

I know when this body of flesh shall decay
My strength and my portion he’ll be;
In death he will be my sweet comfort and stay:
The Savior is waiting for me. [Refrain]
