Representative Text

1 I’ve a home beyond the sea,
Where the shining angels wait;
There’s a place prepared for me,
Just inside the golden gate.

Just inside the golden gate,
Over in the blest estate;
O that home so bright and fair,
Just inside the golden gate.

2 There are mansions bright and fair,
In the blest redeemed one’s state;
Peace and joy beyond compare,
Just inside the golden gate. [Refrain]

3 I shall pass within the gate,
Where the many mansions wait;
I’m an heir to that estate,
Just inside the golden gate. [Refrain]
