Will you go with us to heaven

Representative Text

1 We are going home to heaven’s golden city,
We have tasted of its precious fruit of love;
And, dear sinner, if you’d be forever happy,
Journey with us to that blissful world above.

Will you go to that city?
Jesus will receive you there; will you go?
Will you go with us, oh, will you go to heaven?
Will you journey to that happy home above?

2 Come, dear people, get salvation and be ready,
Not a moment longer should your soul delay;
God is calling, oh, His wondrous love and mercy
Will receive you in that home of endless day. [Refrain]

3 We are going through to glory by the Bible,
See the way-marks, “Be ye holy through the blood”;
In the name of Jesus will you meekly travel
With the pilgrims to that beautiful abode? [Refrain]

4 Choose this day if you will go to that fair city—
Will you share a blest eternity of love?
Jesus calls you, all the ransomed wait to greet you,
And the angels sing to welcome you above. [Refrain]
