Jesus My All to Heaven has Gone

This is another great Sacred Harp tune and text. Thanks to Dave Stuntz at Blacknall Presbyterian in Durham, NC for recommending this to me for Easter. We will be singing it a capella but you may enjoy my acoustic version with our new dishwasher providing the sonic backdrop.

1. Jesus, my all to heav’n is gone,
Glory Hallelujah;
He whom I fix my hopes upon!
Glory Hallelujah!

I want a seat in Paradise,
Glory Hallelujah!
I love that union never dies,
Glory Hallelujah!

The narrow way till Him I view,
Glory Hallelujah!

Glory Hallelujah;
Shalt take me to Thee as I am,
Glory, Hallelujah!.
