Representative Text

1 When I am thro’ with toil and care,
I want to go to glory some day;
That land of love so bright and fair,
I want to go to glory some day.

Refrain:
I want to go to glory some day,
My blessed Lord has promised I may;
That home so fair that waits just over there;
I want to go to glory some day.

2 Tho’ I a pilgrim now may roam,
I want to go to glory some day;
This earth I know is not my home,
I want to go to glory some day. [Refrain]

3 When I shall leave life’s weary road,
I want to go to glory some day;
When I at last lay down my load,
I want to go to glory some day. [Refrain]

4 No tears will there e’er dim the eye,
I want to go to glory some day;
There friends will never say “Goodby”
I want to go to glory some day. [Refrain]

5 Because my Savior lives on high,
I want to go to glory some day;
To help to crown Him by and by,
I want to go to glory some day. [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
