Sing the wondrous love of Jesus,
Sing His mercy and His grace.
In the mansions bright and blessèd
He’ll prepare for us a place.

Refrain

When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We’ll sing and shout the victory!

While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
Clouds will overspread the sky;
But when traveling days are over,
Not a shadow, not a sigh.

Refrain

Let us then be true and faithful,
Trusting, serving every day;
Just one glimpse of Him in glory
Will the toils of life repay.

Refrain

Onward to the prize before us!
Soon His beauty we’ll behold;
Soon the pearly gates will open;
We shall tread the streets of gold.

Refrain


Story:

When We All Get to Heaven  was written by Eliza Hewitt (1851-1920). She was a cousin of Edgar Page Stites, who also wrote great hymns. Hewitt lived in the eastern United States and was actively involved in church and Sunday school programs throughout her life. Hewitt participated in Methodist camp meetings in New Jersey along with the composer, Emily Wilson. The hymn first appeared in 1898. Today, 100 years later, the thought of being together with God in heaven is just as exciting as it was then.


Bible Verses

John 14:2 - In my Father’s house are many rooms…I am going there to prepare a place for you.
