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?
