"I’ve Climbed the Golden Stair"


When have heard the heavenly choir and left the temporal shore,

I’ll thrill with rapture here unknown as Jesus I adore.


Old friends I’ve known long ago will bid me welcome Home; delighted

in that bliss I’ll rest, this earth no more to roam.


What joy will be my portion then, all free from sin and pain!

With death forever past for me, don’t wish me back again.


When you see this old shell of mine, don’t think that I am there.

I’ve traveled on to live with God


I’ve climbed the golden stair!
