Representative Text

1 Look by faith beyond the shadow,
Look beyond the realms of time,
Fix your gaze upon a city,
Where the joy bells ever chime;
See the jeweled crowns of glory—
How they glisten in the line,
Tell me brother, tell me truly,
Are there treasures there of thine?

Are your treasures o’er the river?
Have you jewels there to shine,
Mid the riches up in glory
are there any there of thine?

2 Do you serve the risen Jesus,
Have your sins been washed away?
Is your heart to Christ submissive,
Do you trust Him and obey?
Then to you the words are spoken,
Souls you win for Him shall shine;
They shall deck your crown with beauty,
Precious jewels there are thine. [Chorus]

3 Things of time and life are fleeting,
Quickly they shall pass away,
Jesus Christ the same forever,
God and heav’n shall stand for aye;
Wondrous joy there is in Jesus,
Wealth unknown in love divine;
Mansions built for heirs of glory,
Is a mansion there of thine? [Chorus]
