I Bowed On My Knees

Revelation 4:8
"And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full
of eyes within:  and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come."

          I dreamed of that City called Glory,
          So bright and so fair,
          When I entered the gate I cried, "Holy,"
          The angels all met me there;
          They carried me from mansion to mansion,
          And oh, the sights I saw,
          But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
          The One Who died for all"

            Chorus
            Then I bowed on my knees and cried, "Holy,"
            "Holy,"  "Holy,"
            I clapped my hands and sang,
            "Glory, Glory to the Son of God."

          As I entered the gates of that City,
          My loved ones all knew me well,
          They showed me all around heaven,
          The scenes were too num'rous to tell;
          I saw Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
          Mark, Luke, Timothy,
          But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
          The One Who died for all"

            Chorus
            Then I bowed on my knees and cried, "Holy,"
            "Holy,"  "Holy,"
            I clapped my hands and sang,
            "Glory, Glory to the Son of God."
