Lyrics for:  " I Need No Mansion Here Below"
Posted:  11 Sep 2007 18:04
I need no mansion here below
for Jesus said that I could go
to a home beyond the sky not made with hands
O won't you come and go along
we will sing the sweetest song
ever played upon the harps in gloryland.

That's what I remember of the chorus.  if i can remember the rest, I 'll post later.

In His Presence

"I NEED NO MANSION HERE"

1. WHEN BURDENS COME SO HARD TO BEAR, THAT NO EARTHLY FRIEND CAN SHARE; TEARS DRIVE AWAY THE SMILES AND LEAVE MY HEART IN PAIN, THEN MY LORD FROM HEAVEN ABOVE, SPEAKS TO ME IN TONES OF LOVE; WIPES THE TEARS AWAY, AND MAKES ME SMILE AGAIN

CHORUS: 

I NEED NO MANSION HERE BELOW, FOR JESUS SAID THAT I COULD GO,
TO A HOME BEYOND THE CLOUDS NOT MADE WITH HANDS, WON'T YOU COME AND GO ALONG? WE WILL SING THE SWEETEST SONG, EVER PLAYED UPON THE HARPS IN GLORYLAND

2. OH, THE THOUGHT TO ME IS SWEET, THAT MY LOVED ONES I SHALL MEET, AT THE ENDING OF THE JOURNEY HERE BELOW, SEEMS I HEAR THEIR VOICES BLEND, IN A WORLD WITHOUT AN END; I WON'T WORRY WHEN THE TIME SHALL COME TO GO.

REPEAT CHORUS:

3.  WHEN JESUS COMES TO CLAIM HIS OWN, I WILL MOVE TO MY NEW HOME, I'LL WALK AND TALK TO HIM UPON THE STREETS OF GOLD, A MANSION THERE IS WAITING ME, SOON IT'S BEAUTY I WILL SEE, IN THAT CITY WHERE WE NEVER SHALL GROW OLD.

REPEAT CHORUS:

I am looking for the words of a song written by Bill Gaither called "These are they which came out of Great Tribulation
Posted:  17 Sep 2007 19:54
The title of the Bill Gaither song is "THESE ARE THEY"
Michael English sang this when he was with the Vocal Band.
Right now I can't remember all the words I'll see if I have the music and post later.

"THESE ARE THEY"

1. THE OCEANS GIVE UP ALL THE DEAD THAT ARE IN THEM
AND THE GRAVES OPEN WIDE TO SET CAPTIVES FREE
AND THOSE WHO ARE ROAMING THE EARTH RISE TO MEET THEM, ABRAHAMS SEED AS THE SANDS OF THE SEA

CHORUS: 

THESE ARE THEY WHO HAVE COME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION,
THEY HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
THEY HAVE COME THROUGH MUCH SORROW INTO GREAT JUBLATION
THEY'RE REDEEMED BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB

2. LIKE A STRONG MIGHTY ARMY, THEIR VOICES ARE RINGING
THE GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESS-ESS SING FREEDOM'S SONG,
AS THEY ENTER THE COUNTRY BUILT BY THEIR OWN FATHER,
THE PROMISED HOME-LAND THEY LOOKED FOR SO LONG

CHORUS:

3. ALL THE STRANGERS AND PILGRIMS ARE NO LONGER STRANGERS,
ALL THE TIRED , WEARY WANDERERS, WILL WANDER NO MORE
THE TABLE IS SPREAD FOR THE GREAT CELEBRATION
AND THE WELCOME HOME BANNER FLIES OVER THE DOOR

REPEAT CHORUS:

Thank you, thank you for posting these lyrics. I have been looking for them for years since I first heard Vestal Goodman singing them on a Bill Gaither video. They are so comforting and sweet.

WOW!  My mom used to sing "I Need No Mansion Here Below" when I was a kid.  She would sing it as she did housework.  We sung it in church when I was real little.  Mom's been gone for 20 years now.  I catch myself singing a little of it but could not remember much of the words.  I did a search on the part I could remember and I found your site.  Thank you so much for listing the lyrics.  I have them now. 
Thank you.

Benson publishing had a series of hymnals called "New Songs of Inspiration."  I know this song was in several of them.  I have Number 7 and it is included.
