Mansion over the Hilltop
I'm satisfied with just a cottage below,
A Little silver and a little gold;
But in that city where the ransomed will shine,
I want a gold one that's silver lined.

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop,
In that bright land where we'll never grow old;
And some day yonder we will never more wander
But walk the streets that are purest gold.

Tho' often tempted, tormented and tested
And like the prophet my pillow a stone;

But walk the streets that are purest gold.

Tho' often tempted, tormented and tested
And like the prophet my pillow a stone;
And tho' I find here no permanent dwelling
I know He'll give me a mansion my own.
(Chorus)
Don't think me poor or deserted or lonely,
I'm not discouraged, I'm Heaven bound;
I'm just a pilgrim in search of a city,
I want a mansion, a harp and crown.
(Chorus)
