Climbing up the Golden Stair

O my heart is full of music and of gladness, As on wings

Representative Text

O MY heart is full of music and of gladness,
As on wings of love and faith I upward fly;
Not a shadow-cloud my Saviour’s face obscuring,
While I’m climbing to my homestead in the sky.

Refrain:
O I’m climbing up the golden stair to Glory,
O I’m climbing with my golden crown before me,
I am climbing in the light,
I am climbing day and night,
I shall shout with all my might when I get there!
O I’m climbing up the golden stair to Glory,
O I’m climbing with my golden crown before me,
I am climbing in the light,
I am climbing day and night,
I am climbing up the golden stair!

2 Every day it seems I want to love him better,
Every day it seems I want to serve him more,
Every day I strive to climb the ladder faster,
Every effort brings me nearer Canaan’s shore.

3 O the joy of getting others to climb with me!
Lost, despairing, broken-hearted, all may come;
Calvary-love has made the stair a very wide one;
Sinners, lay your burden down and hasten home.
