Representative Text

1 Soon we’ll reach the pearly gates;
Soon we’ll walk the golden street;
There for us the Saviour waits;
Soon the dear ones we shall meet.

Soon we’ll walk the golden streets,
Soon the dear ones we shall meet.

2 Sorrow’s tears will be no more,
Sickness nor disease will come,
On that happy golden shore,
Blessed and eternal home. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what joy will thrill us then,
As we see our Saviour’s face;
Sweetest voices there will blend,
Praising His redeeming grace. [Refrain]
