I am looking for lyrics to I Want Us to Be Together in Heaven.  Also, I would like to know who originally recorded this song.

Thanks for the help,

The lyrics are as follows as to the best of my knowledge. My dad and I sing it quite a bit in church.  I'm not sure who originally sang it, but the Singing Cookes sing it. A few of the words are different in the songbook we have at church. I think it uses "march" instead of "walk" in the chorus, and also the songbooks says "river of life flowing"  instead of "river gently flowing", but regardless, I hope this helps and is the song you need...debbie

  You may have a fancy car
  Brand new house that shines by far
  You may live to be a hundred years old
  But if you have not been saved
  It all ends with the grave
  But I want us to be together in heaven

I want us to be together in Heaven
I want to walk (march) down the streets of pure gold
I want to run through the fields of green clover
See the mansions, smell the flowers
Hear the singing, its all ours
See the river gently flowing
Feel the gentle breezes blowing
I want us to be together in Heaven

You may be a millionaire
Wearing clothes beyond compare
You may have the best that money can buy
But if the blood is not applied
Then in Hell you'll lift your eyes
But I want us to be together in Heaven

Thank you so much for these lyrics.  I have a great aunt who just passed and she had requested that I sing this at her service which will be tomorrow.  Thank you again for your help and God Bless you.

I'm looking for the lyrics to a song titled "But For The Blood."  I don't know who sings it but a dear friend who has gone on to be with Jesus used to sing it in church and now I would like to learn it also.

But For The Blood - The Hoppers [G]

I had no one to blame
How I longed to hide my face
I'm so ashamed  for all the wrong I'd done
Yes I know I had to pay
I was bound to face hell's gate
And I'd be there today my friend
But for the blood.

But for the blood  shed on Calvary's tree
But for the blood there'd be no hope for you and me
For all my righteousness is filthy rags, and that's all I'd ever be
But for the blood  that cleansed and set me free.


Even now I get so low
You know the devil lets me know
I'm so undeserving
And  unworthy of God's love
But oh yes I know it's true
But here I am with the chosen few
I stand today  Yes, I'm saved just by the blood.

[Repeat Chorus]

But for the blood that cleansed and set me free,
But for the blood that cleansed and set me free. r
