Hi Captain_44
I enjoyed this immensely. Thanks for requesting it.
I listened to all their other songs and was not disappointed

Here are the lyrics. I wasn’t sure about one word. Please fill in the blank

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFulm7WUwg4

Children I’ve already started out to find a better home
Where no sickness and no sorrow of this mean old world will come
There with my relatives and friends we will be so happy then
Up there in the presence of the Lord all the time

It was when I was young, I began to think upon
My conditions as a sinner, unsaved Oh yes
But I made it up in my mind while I had sufficient time
That I would bow down on my knees Lord and pray

I told him I’ve already started out to find a better home
I’m going where no sickness and no sorrow of this mean, mean world will come
There with my relatives and friends we will be so happy then
Up there in the presence of the Lord all the time

Old satan tried to get me to live a hypocrite
He said it would be alright if I live a worldly _ Oh yes
He told me that time have changed the way
We’re living in a modern and enlightened day
He told me just to do whatever I please. It ain’t no harm

But I told him I’ve already started out to find a better home
I’m going where no sickness and no sorrow of this mean old world will come
There with my relatives and friends we will be so happy then
Up there in the presence of the Lord all the time

I tried it for a while, trying to keep up with every style
I was trying to get a crown without a cross Oh yes
I soon found out that wouldn’t do Oh for the Word of God is true
And unless I live upright, my soul will be lost

And I told him I already started out to find a better home
Where no sickness and no sorrow of this mean old world will come
There with my relatives and friends we will be so happy then
Up there in the presence of the Lord all the time
