Facing Toward the City

Representative Text

1 There’s a place where many mansions with a lustrous beauty shine,
Where unceasing songs of triumph gladly ring;
Do you long to find a dwelling in those palaces divine?
Are you facing t’ward the city of the King?

Are you facing t’ward the city of the King?
Are you facing t’ward the city of the King?
While the days are passing by
Do you seek the home on high?
Are you facing t’ward the city of the King?

2 As you walk in earthly pathways, sharing conflicts, grief and pain,
Can you see beyond the shadows heavn’s goal?
Faith beholds the life eternal free from ev’ry sinful stain;
Is that blessed vision given to your soul? [Chorus]

3 Oh, a bliss beyond all telling for each ransomed spirit waits
When the changes, toil and care of time are o’er;
Seek to join the pure redeemed ones safe within celestial gates,
Singing glory to the Lamb forevermore. [Chorus]
