Representative Text

1 There’s a mansion for me, and its gleams I see
In the visions of faith bright and clear;
This my title shall be, Jesus died for me,
And his word of assurance I hear.

All glory to the Lamb! hear the ransomed sweetly sing
On earth and in heaven above;
This my theme shall ever be, Jesus died for you and me;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord for his love!

2 I will cling to his hand till I reach that land,—
He will never forsake me, I know,—
Till with him I shall stand on the golden strand,
Where the bright, crystal streams ever flow. [Refrain]

3 They are waiting up there, happy saints who wear
Linen robes washed in blood pure and white;
To that home blest and fair, far beyond compare,
I am hasting to share their delight. [Refrain]

4 While I walk here below he is saying now,
Be thou faithful, my child, for awhile;
Oh, what joy I shall know with the saved to bow,
When I rest evermore in his smile. [Refrain]

5 At the sight of my King a new song I’ll sing;
There I nevermore silent will be;
Close to joy’s blessed spring I will fold my wing,
For he saved, yes, he saved even me. [Refrain]
