I’ve got a reason for believing
I’ve got a hope that I can trust
I put my treasure up in heaven
where no thief can steal
no worm destroy
no rain can rust
It won’t be long and I will be leaving

He began a good work in me
when I put my trust in Him
And from glory unto glory
change my wicked heart
and take away
all of my sin
And make me ready for His coming

And they say the streets are gold
in that city bright and fair
No more sickness, no more hunger
no more dying over there
Like a candle in the darkness
I can almost see the light
from my home away from home

When we gather at that river
and we hear the trumpet sound
and all those who’ve gone before us
and the dead in Christ shall rise
and all will gather round
singing a song that’s like no other

And they say the streets are gold
in that city bright and fair
But when I look upon my Savior
I don’t really think I’ll care
I can almost hear the angels singing
when I close my eyes
from my home away from home

And they say the streets are gold
in that city bright and fair
No more sickness, no more hunger
no more dying over there
Like a candle in the darkness
I can almost see the light
from my home away from home
