Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Note

This is not the tune.

The Composed Song

1. Even now when shall I also

Provideth for mine own house?

Jacob even asks of this word

Even from the man Laban

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above


2. ‘Tis also good that those of us

Who accept Jesus as our Lord

Will ask of this from ourselves

Do we provide for our house

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above


3. This world ‘ven is also a field

For everyone who lives there

And if anybody goes to farm

It’s a must to return home

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above


4. Jesus equates the world to market

An’ no one ‘ll go to m’rket

Without returning to his house

Yea during the evening time

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above


5. Strangers and even the aliens

Are we even in the world

We ought to also be prepared

Even for our eternal home

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above


6. Thou who hath faith even in the Christ

Seek thou thiongs which are above

Where Christ hath also siteth down

On the right hand of the God

My heart draweth unto my house

That is in heaven above
