1 I am looking for the city built of God,
Where the many mansions be;
I am walking now the path that Jesus trod,
And His face I soon shall see.

Refrain:
Oh the glory gates are ever open wide
Inviting the world to come;
Oh the glory gates are ever open wide,
To welcome the weary home!

2 Thro' the valley of the shadow I may go,
But His grace shall be my stay;
Tho' the path be dark and dangerous I know
He will guide me all the way. [Refrain]

3 'Tis glory now that fills and thrills my soul,
As I walk the narrow way;
I am looking for the heav'nly light to dawn,
That shall rise in endless day. [Refrain]
