A Mansion in Glory
I want no mansion here below
For other folks to see,
For one awaits in Gloryland…
Custom built just for me—
A place prepared by God the Son—
Made to last eternally;
O how I long to see His face…
There by the crystal sea.
Christian loved ones shall reunite,
In that Land of the free,
And in one accord, praise the Lord…
Hearts rejoicing with glee.
Casting all crowns before His feet,
As His bright face we see,
We’ll praise Him for that rugged Cross—
The Cross of Calvary.
All who know the risen Saviour,
Shall meet the Master there,
Where souls delight forevermore…
No more trouble or care;
O praise Father, Son, and Spirit,
For love beyond compare,
And for A Mansion in Glory…
Custom built for us there.
Jesus said: “In my Father’s house
are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place
for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
