In Heaven We'll Never Grow Old

Cat. #0868 (MFH #299) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on August 27, 1969

VERSE 1
In th Bible, we read of a city
Where th streets are all paved with pure gold
We'll live in that city forever
An' there we shall never grow old

CHORUS:
In Heaven we'll never grow old
In Heaven we'll never grow old
We'll live in that city forever
An' there we shall never grow old

VERSE 2
In th Bible, we read of a river
That flows by th throne we are told
We'll drink of th pure liv'in water
An' there we shall never grow old

VERSE 3
We read of th earth weary pilgrim
Who wandered thru hungry an' cold
They reached land of safety
An' there they shall never grow old
