John 14:2
"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

          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.

            Chorus
            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 trav'ling days are over,
          Not a shadow, not a sigh.

            Chorus
            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!

          Let us then be true and faithful,
          Trusting, serving every day;
          Just one glimpse of Him in glory
          Will the toils of life repay.

            Chorus
            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!

          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.

            Chorus
            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!
