Sunday's Song- When We All Get To Heaven

This is a hymn that gives us hope for the future. No matter how bad things can be on earth we will be going home soon!


When We All Get To Heaven


1. Sing the wondrous love of Jesus;
sing his mercy and his grace.
In the mansions bright and blessed
he'll prepare for us a place.
Refrain:
When we all get to heaven,
what a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
we'll sing and shout the victory!

2. While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
clouds will overspread the sky;
but when traveling days are over,
not a shadow, not a sigh.
(Refrain)

3. Let us then be true and faithful,
trusting, serving every day;
just one glimpse of him in glory
will the toils of life repay.
(Refrain>

4. Onward to the prize before us!
Soon his beauty we'll behold;
soon the pearly gates will open;
we shall tread the streets of gold.
(Refrain)

Nancy....I just love this hymn! It brings so many wonderful memories of when I was younger, standing up in church, sharing a hymn book with my Dad, his huge hand holding the one side, my tiny hand holding the other, and my father singing this song so beautifully! He had a wonderful voice and I just loved listening to him. Now, reading the words that I have sung so many times, they are rich in promises, aren't they? Thanks!!!

This is one of our family favorites! We can't carry a tune but we sure enjoy singing this one at the top of our lungs!
