Representative Text

1 When I enter that beautiful city,
Far removed from earth’s sorrow and care,
I want to hear somebody saying,
“It was you who invited me here.”

Refrain:
Oh, ‘twas you who invited me here!
‘Twas you who invited me here!
It will thrill me to hear someone saying,
“’Twas you who invited me here!”

2 When the arches of heaven are ringing,
With their music so sweet and so clear,
I want to hear somebody saying,
“It was you who invited me here.” [Refrain]

3 When I bow in those mansions eternal,
And the saved of the nations appear,
I want to heave somebody tell me
“It was you who invited me here.” [Refrain]

4 Then along thru’ the highways and byways,
I will seek for the lost who are there;
So I’ll hear, like sweet music from others,
“It was you who invited me here.” [Refrain]
