I dreamed I had gone to that city
That city where never comes night
And I saw the right angels in Glory
I saw their fair mansions of light.

I gazed for long, long years of rapture
On the face of my Saviour so true
And I sang with the seraphim holy
Then I dreamed I searched heaven for you.

I dreamed I searched heaven for you
Searched vainly through heaven for you
Oh, won't you prepare to meet me up there
Lest we should search heaven for you.

---Instrumental ---

I looked on both sides of the river
That flows through the city of God
I searched through bright mansions celestial
And streets of gold pavement Thy trod.

The faces of saints by the millions
I scanned in my yearning to see
That face I had cherrished so fondly
The face that had grown dear to me.

I dreamed I searched heaven for you
Searched vainly through heaven for you
Oh, won't you prepare to meet me up there
Lest we should search heaven for you...
