Revelation 22:14
"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right
to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."

          I am going to a city
          Where the streets with gold are laid,
          Where the tree of life is blooming
          And the roses never fade.

            Chorus
            Here they bloom but for a season,
            Soon their beauty is decayed;
            I am going to a city
            Where the roses never fade.

          In this world we have our troubles,
          Satan's snares we must evade;
          We'll be free from all temptations
          Where the roses never fade.

            Chorus
            Here they bloom but for a season,
            Soon their beauty is decayed;
            I am going to a city
            Where the roses never fade.

          Loved ones gone to be with Jesus,
          In their robes of white arrayed,
          Now are waiting for my coming
          Where the roses never fade

            Chorus
            Here they bloom but for a season,
            Soon their beauty is decayed;
            I am going to a city
            Where the roses never fade.
