Representative Text

1 There is a mansion bright and fair,
For you and me;
There is a welcome waiting there
For you and me;
Why homeless then, and wand’ring wide,
Since Jesus doth a place provide,
For you, O sinner, you and me.

Chorus:
For you and me,
For you, yes, you and me;
For you and me,
For you, yes, you and me.

2 There is a garment clear as light,
For you and me;
There is a robe of purest white
For you and me;
O why on rags a thought bestow,
Since Christ hath raiment white as snow,
For you, O sinner, you and me. [Chorus]

3 There is a table richly spread
For you and me;
There is a full supply of bread
For you and me;
Then why in want and sore distress,
Since Jesus doth all things possess,
For you, O sinner, you and me. [Chorus]
