I used to love hearing my Grandmother and her sisters sing this, but I can’t remember all of the lyrics to the verses. Google search doesn’t pull up anything. Surely someone on here will know it, I hope!
Thanks.


I have heard about a city grand
Yonder on the bright and shining strand
Built for those who all serve Him here
Praise His holy name I’m going there

Chorus:
I am going there oh yes I’m going there
Where the flowers bloom beyond compare
I’ll walk the streets of gold with saints of old
Oh I tell you now I’m going there

Up the narrow road where saints have trod
I’ll keep pressing on and thanking God
To a brighter world ——?——than this
Oh ——??————. (oh this trip I can’t afford to miss)? Maybe?

Chorus:
I am going there oh yes I’m going there
Where the flowers bloom beyond compare
I’ll walk the streets of gold with saints of old
Oh I tell you now I’m going there

Loved ones beckon me from heaven’s door
I can’t feel at home here anymore
There well never grow old —-??——
Sing forever more around God’s throne

Chorus again
