Help! Can't find "Streets of Gold" or AKA "Thank God I've Made it"

Post by Guest » Mon Apr 16, 2007 1:07 am

I can't find the lyrics to an old song our family used to sing. I would really appreciate any help on getting all the words. First verse and chorus goes:

As my soul left my body that was made of earthly clay
An angel of the Lord carried me through the eastern gate.
As his nail scarred hands carressed my soul
He gave me a clean white robe, And I cried I've made it!
Thank God I've made it! My feet have touched the streets of Gold.

Streets of gold I now am walking, just passed by the tree of life.
Took a drink of living water flowing down from God on high.
I now see the halelujah square and the mansion that won't grow old,
And I cry I've made it, thank God I've made it,
My feet have touched the streets of gold!

That is all I can remember. My mother is going nuts trying to remember them and now she has me going nuts alongside her! I know there is more, but can't find the words anywhere. Please help us if you can. We would also like to know the artist if anyone knows. If you can help, please send a note to my mother at -- [email]bettybrennan47@yahoo.com.[/email]
Thanks!

THE SONG IS TITLED "THANK GOD I MADE IT"
WRITTEN BY GENE ANDERSON IN 1981 AND RECORDED BY THE INSPIRATIONS IN THE 80'S. I HAVE THE SHEET MUSIC. WRITTEN IN THE KEY OF Ab

VERSE 1
AS MY SOUL LEFT MY BODY THAT WAS MADE OF EARTHLY CLAY
AN ANGEL OF THE LORD CARRIED ME THROUGH THE EASTERN GATE
AS HIS NAIL PIERCED HANDS CARESSED MY SOUL HE GAVE ME A CLEAN WHITE ROBE AN I CRIED
I MADE IT THANK GOD I MADE IT MY FEET HAVE HAVE TOUCHED THE STREET OF GOLD

VERSE 2
NOW MY EARTHY LIFE IS OVER I HAVE MADE THE NARROW WAY
AND A CROWN OF LIFE IM WEARING DOWN THE STREET OF GOLD TODAY
I'M NOW TOURING THAT HOLY CITY SHOUTING DOWN AND ENDLESS ROAD AND I CRIED
I MADE IT THANK GOD I MADE IT MY FEET HAVE TOUCHED THE STREET OF GOLD.

CHORUS
STREETS OF GOLD I NOW AM WALKING JUST PASSED BY THE TREE OF LIFE
TOOK A DRINK OF LIVING WATER FLOWING DOWN FROM GOD ON HIGH
I NOW SEE THE HALLELUJAH SQUARE AND A MANSION THAT WONT GROW OLD AND I CRIED
I MADE IT THANK GOD I MADE IT MY FEET HAVE TOUCH THE STREET OF GOLD

I love this song. My husband and I were wrecking our brain trying to remember the song. He and our then Pastor sang it at the graveside when we buried my dad 4 years ago. How can I get the sheet music.
