When the Lord returns I’ll be ready
I am longing for His welcome voice.
For God’s word has said He will take me
To a mansion in the Father’s house.
I was lost in sin but He found me
Though unworthy I received His grace.
For I saw the cross where my Saviour
Bore my sin and died as in my place.
Blessed Lord, my God, my Redeemer
O the joy to know I am forgiven.
I am trusting Christ as my Saviour;
Jesus’ blood has cleansed me from all sin.
‘In my Father’s house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.’
