Since attending the Greater Vision/Legacy Five concert the other night, I've almost worn out the latest CD from Greater Vision, "Greater Vision Now and Then". The first song is entitled "On a Journey" and I've played it over and over again. I can envision a "band of believers" lifting their voices heavenward as we get closer to home.
On A Journey
We are on a journey,
Ev'ry step brings us closer home;
We're going to keep our eyes on Jesus
Knowing that He'll lead us
To that land where streets are purest gold.
Walking together towards heaven
Talking and singing about heaven,
Brothers and sisters
Members of the Family of God;
I can't wait to leave here
Don't you want to be there?
When the saints all go marching in;
Some from every nation
What a celebration!
Hand in hand, together with the Lord.
Those who've gone before us
With the Lord will greet us
As we walk through those gates of pearl;
We're going to bow our knees before Him
We're going to worship and adore Him
It's the church, forever with the Lord.
Fellow pilgrims, don't grow weary! The Great Shepherd will lead us safely home! Can you see the lights of heaven just up ahead? Press on, dear friends!
