I'd rather see Jesus come in the sky
Than to live one hundred years, then in the grave to lie
The promise in God's word says in the clouds we'll see
The blessed Son of God who will be calling you and me
For some who now are living will live then at that great time
When trumpet blast announces that he's here and we will fly!

The Bible says the dead in Christ are first to then arise
And we who are still living go up where no one will die
God gives us all new bodies for to walk the streets of gold
From mortal to immortal in God's word this all is told

This is a celebration God has promised you and me
The hope of Jesus's coming and his wondrous face we see
The Glory up in heaven all believers then will know
When we pass through the pearly gates eternal life will flow

An ocean of God's love is there to sing and dance and shout
The praises of eternal God will be found all throughout
The land of hope and promise God prepared for who believes
There's just one way to get there, yes, and Jesus is the key

I am the door to heaven Jesus tells us in God's word
The music there majestic that no mortal ever heard!
Please come with me to heaven in our Father's house above
The gift of God that's offered, for there is no greater love
Yes Jesus paid a heavy price to give his life to save
Without my blessed Savior I would then be Satan's slave
But all those chains of darkness found here on this Earth below
Our Christ did break assunder there on Calvary, this I know

(Chorus):This is a celebration God has promised you and me
The hope of Jesus's coming and his wondrous face we see
The Glory up in heaven all believers then will know
When we pass through the pearly gates eternal life will flow

I particularly liked how you phrased these lines Marty:
God gives us all new bodies for to walk the streets of gold
From mortal to immortal in God's word this all is told


nicely done!
