Lyrics

Sing the won­drous love of Je­sus,
Sing His mer­cy and His grace.
In the man­sions bright and bless­èd
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!

While we walk the pil­grim path­way,
Clouds will ov­er­spread the sky;
But when tra­vel­ing days are ov­er,
Not a sha­dow, not a sigh.

Refrain

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

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.
