Porter Wagoner – When I Reach That City lyrics

On the top of Mount Zion is a city
And the earth with it's glory it doth fill
And I look upon it's beauty in the morning
When I reach that city on the hill.

Oh, that city on Mount Zion
Though a pilgrim yet I love Thee still
I'll not leave Thee through the ages
When I reach that city on the hill.

So I'll stay here until my Saviour calls me
Tryin' daily to perform his will
Then he'll say Come to me, well done up yonder
When I reach that city on the hill.

Oh, that city on Mount Zion
Though a pilgrim yet I love Thee still
I'll not leave Thee through the ages
When I reach that city on the hill.

--- Instrumental ---

On the top of Mount Zion is God's city
And my friends and my loved ones will be there
Where we'll all live forever in thatcity
When I reach that city on the hill.

Oh, that city on Mount Zion
Though a pilgrim yet I love Thee still
I'll not leave Thee through the ages
When I reach that city on the hill.

When I reach that city on the hill...

    My Grandpa saw the vision of that hill or Mountain where the Holy City and the Lord dwells. He has experience a stroke. :( He keeps telling us that he saw over the Mountain and the Rainbow, and that is were he is gonna live. And we are in awe. Now this song has surface and I never thought about it before. I've heard the song many times but never connected the dots. This is sooo awesome it blows me away. The person who wrote this song must have seen it in a vision also. I hope this does not mean he is leaving us very soon. I want also to go there forever one day. Love you all. God bless.
