I Want To Go There.... Looking for any information about this song

Post by msbubrry » Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:05 pm

I'm looking for any information about this song, who wrote it, groups that recorded it and all of the lyrics. If anyone can help at all it would be greatly appreciated. Here is what I have but I don't think the lyrics are correct and I can't remember how the song goes. Thanks for any help and God Bless!

I Want To Go There

Verse:1
I have heard of a place of joy and wondrous beauty,
where the half up there has never yet been told,
I know beauty can't compare to the one who awaits me there,
my Savior's face inside the gates will be worth it all.

Chorus:
I want to go there, I mean to go there,
I want to see what waits inside those jasper walls,
I want to go there, I mean to go there
I'm making preparations for that final call.

Verse: 2
If we gain the whole world and lose our soul,
it shall not profit in the end so we are told,
no pleasures here or treasures there can match the joys
yonder lay aside your weights and lay up riches there.

I also am looking for information on this song. I want our youth group at church to sing this song, but I need to find the music first. Your post is the only place I can find anything about it on the internet. The name of the song is "I Want to Go There", but I can't remember who recorded it. The artist's name would make it much easier to find information about the song.

When you go to youtube, type in the name of the song like this" I want to go there, bluegrass gospel" and you'll find it easier. I meant to tell you that on the above post.
God Bless!!!

The bluegrass song is not the same one as the words msbubbrry typed. I'd like to find it too.

This was recorded by a group, Cedar Ridge, in 1989. Adina Benton Bowman, mother-in-law to Joseph Habedank of the Perrys, wrote this tune. This was the last single from Cedar Ridge's days with Sonlite Records. "I Want to Go There" was on Cedar Ridge's album, Heartfelt.

Does anyone by chance have any of their music? I would love to own their music. What I've heard sounds great!

Here are some videos of the group singing:
