Song Lyrics

Well, I’ve heard about a place not made by any man
Gates of pearl, streets of gold where the rescued love to dance,
And I’ve heard about the angels singing to the lamb
We are bound for, we are bound for the City of Joy

Well, I’ve heard about a place where there’s no more night
Where the lion and the lamb are sleeping side by side
And I’ve heard that there are colors that no one can describe
We are bound for, we are bound for the City of Joy

Oh what a day that it’s gonna be, when our Savior we shall see
And the curse of sin and suffering is finally destroyed
We are bound for the City of Joy

Well, I’ve heard about a day when that trumpet sounds
The sky will crack wide open and our feet come off the ground
And I’ve heard that we will see him as all the saints bow down
We are bound for, we are bound for the City of Joy

Oh what a day that it’s gonna be, when our Savior we shall see
And the curse of sin and suffering is finally destroyed
We are bound for the City of Joy
We are bound for the City of Joy

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
We’ll sing and shout the victory

Oh what a day that it’s gonna be, when our Savior we shall see
And the curse of sin and suffering is finally destroyed
We are bound for the City of Joy
We are bound for the City of Joy
We are bound for the City of Joy
