I Am Bound For That Bright City


I am bound for that bright city
Where the streets are paved with gold,
Where in peace I’ll dwell forever,
O the joy can ne’er be told.

Refrain:
Will you meet me over yonder,
And with happy millions dwell?
Will you meet me over yonder,
Where we’ll never say farewell.

That will be a happy meeting
With the dear ones passed away;
O the joy of that reunion
In that land of endless day. [Refrain]

Brother, say how are you living?
Should He call for you to go,
Are you ready for the summons?
Is your robe made white as snow? [Refrain]

There a mansion is awaiting
For the ones who overcome;
Soon life’s storms will pass forever,
And we’ll safely reach our home. [Refrain]
