I'm Bound For That City
      (Allison Durham Speer)

Theres a city of light
Where there cometh no night
For the sun never sets in the sky
In the Bible were told
That the streets are pure gold
And a cool gentle river runs by

Chorus:
Im bound for that city
Gods holy white city
Oh yes I am
Ill never turn back to this world
Anymore
No matter how rough may be the way
No matter how oft I stop to pray
Im bound for that city
On that evergreen shore

Little children will play
And our hearts will be gay
As we stroll through that city of pure gold
No more dying up there
No more burdens to bear
For nobody will be feeble or old
