Representative Text

1 I’ve received an invitation from the glorious King of kings,
I am going to be there;
To be present at the banquet when the Lord his ransomed brings,
I am going to be there.

Refrain:
I’ve received an invitation, glory, glory to his name!
To the great marriage supper of the Lamb;
And the Lord command has given for the summons to prepare,
I am going to be there.

2 When the saved ones of all ages gather ‘round the great white throne,
I am going to be there;
Where in all the bright forever we shall know as we are known,
I am going to be there. [Refrain]

3 Where the city walls are jasper and the streets are purest gold,
I am going to be there;
Where the King in all his beauty eye to eye we shall behold,
I am going to be there. [Refrain]

4 Where the harps are never silent, and the choral songs ascend,
I am going to be there;
Where throughout the countless ages joy and bliss shall never end,
I am going to be there. [Refrain]

5 Where no sickness ever enters, neither sorrow, death nor pain,
I am going to be there;
And where our departed loved ones we shall meet and know again,
I am going to be there. [Refrain]

6 Will you meet me over yonder in that city of delight?
I am going to be there;
Where a mansion is awaiting and a robe of spotless white,
I am going to be there. [Refrain]
