Representative Text

1 I’ve a banking house up in glory,
And I’m banking every day;
My securities are in vaults on high
Which never can decay.

I have a great big interest in the glory land,
Over on the other shore;
I’ve a mansion there that is great and grand,
Where I’ll live forevermore;
And then my mother waiting over there for me,
Holds another heav’nly share;
So that I can live eternally
On the treasures I have there.

2 I’m investing over in Beulah,
And my stocks surpass pure gold;
I am rated there with the saints of God,
Whose riches are untold. [Refrain]

3 I’m a joint heir now, with my Savior,
To the kingdom up on high;
Soon I’ll go to join in a partnership,
Where pleasures never die. [Refrain]
