Eliza Hewitt, a school teacher in Philadelphia (1898), who wanted to reach her students with the Gospel wrote the classic hymn, “When We All Get to Heaven.” The music was written by Emily Wilson, who was also the wife of a Methodist District Superintendent.
The anticipation of Heaven has often been described as the oxygen of the human soul (1 John 3:3). Allow your imagination to anticipate that day in Heaven.
The original first verse of this hymn describes “mansions bright and blessed” and states “He’ll prepare for us a place.” This description comes from John 14:2 when Jesus comforts the disciples by telling them about His coming in the Earthly kingdom.
This line may be changed to reflect our different destination in this dispensation. The change is reflected as: “In the air we’ll rise to meet Him, then we’ll see Him face to face” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
So sing it with joy to the same tune!
1. “Sing the wondrous love of Jesus, sing His mercy and grace:
In the air we’ll rise to meet Him, then we’ll see Him face to face.
2. Pressing t’ward the prize before us, soon this glory we’ll behold
We’ll redeem our Heavenly bodies, leave behind our flesh of old.
3. He which raised up the Lord Jesus, shall raise us up in that day;
Then we’ll be with Him in glory, ever with the Lord to stay.”
When we all___ get to Heaven, what a day of rejoining that will be!
When we all___ see Jesus, we’ll sing and shout the victory___!
May you enjoy this a fresh and a new.
