I looked past the curtain of time,And saw up the beautiful stairsTen thousand bright angels in gloryAll dressed in white raiment so fair."The battle is over," I heard them,
Their voices rang out o’er the air.
With palm leaves they shouted "Hosanna,"His glory forever well share.Our troubles and toiling is over,The tempter is under our feet
He’s cast down in darkness forever
While we walk the beautiful streets.The flowers will bloom on forever,The leaves of the trees evergreen. No night will come to our city,
For it’s lightened by heaven’s bright beam.
As we stroll through the garden of heavenAnd smell the lilies so sweet,
We’ll clasp the hands of our loved ones,
As He says, "May your joy be complete."As He shows us each one to our mansionsAnd we move in forever to stay,The children will play by the fountain,Our treasures will never decay.
We’ll visit each other in heaven,
So often I’ll knock on your door.
We can sit on the porch of your mansion
And look out o’er the beautiful shore.
We can talk of God’s blessings for ages,
For time up there will never end.
We’ll all have plenty i
I’ll be just as rich as you then.
The ole ship of Zion is anchored,
They’re stepping out onto the shore.
"The journey is ended," they shouted,
"We’ll never sail seas anymore."
The gates swing open so gently
As all of God’s children pass through;
At last we hear Jesus say softly,"I came here to fix this for you."
