When We All Get To Heaven – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Another old-time hymn that featured on Willie and Bobbie Nelson’s album Farther Along.
Eliza E Hewitt’s lyrics and Emily D Wilson’s tune are well matched and speak to an eternal hope that awaits after earthly pilgrimage.
Willie and Bobby provide a restrained, yet joyous rendition.

The lyrics:
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]
