"Prelude To Glory"

I've slipped off the surley

Bonds of earth, To go on a

Journey Far,

Tis awaiting me at Heaven's door

Beyond The Brightest Star.

My entrance to this glorious land

Will surely be complete,

When I meet the One that saved me,

And plucked me from defeat.

For He has promised me a home

A mansion if you will!

In that Shining City, beyond

The farthest hill.

There I'll join my mother, sisters

Brothers too,

I'll have to pinch my brand new

Body, just to know it's true!

My pilgrimage is o'er, the

Crown of Life I've won,

Ten thousand times ten thousand

Years, my life has just begun.

When you think of me, do it

With a smile,

For I hope to see you there,

In a little while.
