I'm Going to Live with Jesus

Representative Text

1 In a city with the angels fair,
I've a mansion built of jewels rare;
There with Jesus I shall live in glory,
For I'm going to meet Him there.

I am going there to meet Him in glory;
What rejoicing When I see Him;
Hallelujahs will be ringing forever;
With Jesus my soul shall be.

2 Psalms of victory with saints I'll bring,
Songs of gladness I shall ever sing,
Endless praises I shall shout forever
Unto Jesus my Lord and King. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what glory then my soul shall share,
For no sorrow o'er can enter there,--
Joy celestial in that home eternal,
With my Savior, a crown to wear. [Refrain]
