I shall surely keep running on now
On Into that marvelous joyful light
So far it has been a steady journey
It’s been a good run far into the night.
The joy bells are ringing louder now
My home is just over the next big hill
I can almost see golden gates opening
Getting home will be my biggest thrill.
There are the streets of gold up there
The beautiful Tree of Life so grand
The leaves are good for our healing
Eternal life will be great in that land.
When the Crowning of King Jesus starts
In that great number I know I’ll be seen
At His precious knee we all will humbly bow
Glorifying God as praise in our hearts ring
It will be a wonderful life at home over there
Living where happiness reigns so supreme
Everyday will be a blessed wonderful joy
Where Christ the Son of God forever is King
