“A Gathering in the Sky”

There’ll be a great gathering in the sky

When all of God’s children get home

We’ll join the happy millions as they sing

There around the great white throne

I’m speaking of a big tent meetin’

Where we never shall say good-bye

I’m longin’ for the day

When I hear my savior say

There’s a gathering in the sky.

One by one we passed through the valley dim

Our load seems hard to bear;

But I’m going to a great reunion,

Where People’s not afraid of prayer.

There’ll be lot of old time singing.

Somewhere up there on high.

It seems I can hear them saying

There’s a gathering in the sky

“I Sing a Song of the Saints of God”

I sing a song of the saints of God

Patient and brave and true,

Who foiled and fought and lived and died

For the Lord they loved and knew

And one was doctor, and one was a queen,

And one was a shepherdess on the green:

They were all of them saints of God,

And I mean, God helping, to be one too.

They loved their Lord so dear, so dear,

And his love made them strong;

And they followed the right, for Jesus’ sake,

The whole of their good lives long,
And one was a solider, and one was a priest,

And one was slain by a fierce wild beast:

And there’s not any reason, no, not the least,

Why I shouldn’t be one too.

They lived not only in ages past,

There are hundreds of thousands still
The world is bright with the joyous saints

Who love to do Jesus’ will.

You can meet them in school or in lanes, or at sea.

In church, or in trains, or in shops, or at tea;

For the saints of God are just folk like me,

And I mean to be one too.
