Sing to Me of Heaven

Cat. #1028 (MFH #617) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 28, 1969

VERSE 1
O, sing to me of Heaven
When I am called to die
Sing songs of Holy estacey
An' wrap my soul on high

VERSE 2
Then to my raptured here
Let one sweet song be given
Sing of Heaven, delightful Heaven
My glorious home on high

VERSE 3
Then close my silent eyes
And lay me down to rest
Cross my cold an' icy hands
Across't my peaceful breast

VERSE 4
Then around my senseless clay
Of them 'll go I love
Sing of Heaven, delightful Heaven
My glorious home above
