473. I Bowed on My Knees and Cried "Holy"

1 I dreamed of a city called Glory, so bright and so fair,
When I entered the gate I cried, "Holy," the angels all welcomed me there.
They led me from mansion to mansion, and, oh, the sights I saw;
But I said, "I want to see Jesus, the One who died for all."

Refrain:
Then I fell on my knees and cried, "Holy," "Holy," "Holy,"
I fell at His feet and sang, "Glory, glory to the Son of God."

2 I thought when I entered that city, my loved ones knew me well,
They showed me all thru heaven, the scenes are too num'rous to tell.
I saw Abr'ham, Isaac, and Jacob, Mark, Luke, and Timothy;
But I said, "Let me bow down and worship the One who died for me." [Refrain]

3 I thought when I saw my dear Savior, there seated on His throne,
Oh, the wonder that He could love me, and call me His very own.
I bowed down and worshipped this Savior, my friend of Calvary;
And I wanted to praise Him forever for saving one like me. [Refrain]
