There Is a Habitation

Happy Thanksgiving!   Thought I’d share a song today about heaven — a great old hymn I grew up singing called “There is  a Habitation.”  I like doing it with acoustic guitar in DADGAD tuning — I explain in the video what that is.  “O Zion, Zion, I long thy gates to see…”

There is a habitation
Built by the living God
For all of ev’ry nation
Who seek that grand abode

O Zion, Zion, I long thy gates to see
O Zion, Zion, when shall I dwell in thee?

A city with foundations
Firm as th’eternal throne
Nor wars nor desolations
Shall ever move a stone

No night is there, no sorrow
No death, and no decay
No yesterday, no morrow
But one eternal day

Within its pearly portals
Angelic armies sing
With glorified immortals
The praises of its King
