Mansion Over The Hilltop
 
I'm satisfied with just a cottage below
A little silver and a little gold
But in that city where the ransomed will shine
I want a gold one that's silver lined
      
      I've got a mansion just over the hilltop
      In that bright land where we'll never grow old
      And some day yonder we'll never more wander
      But walk on streets that are purest gold
      
Though often tempted, tormented and tested
And, like the prophet, my pillow a stone
And tho' I find here no permanent dwelling
I know He'll give me a mansion my own
      
Don't think me poor or deserted or lonely
I'm not discouraged I'm heavenly bound
I'm just a pilgrim in search of the city
I want a mansion, a harp and a crown
