A Saturday Spiritual Hymn!

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Aloha SP Members! Here is a spiritual hymn that was created by Ira Stanphill in 1949. He wrote the words and the music. His inspiration for this hymn came from John 14:1-3: "Do not let your hearts be trouble.....TRUST GOD".

TITLE: Mansion Over The Hill

1. 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. (REFRAIN).

2. Don't think me poor or deserted or lonely, I'm not discouraged, I'm heaven bound; I'm just a pilgrim in search of a city, I want a mansion, a robe and a crown. (REFRAIN).

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop, in that bright land where we'll never grow old; And some day yonder we will never more wander, But walk the streets that are purest gold.

    This has always been one of my favorites . . . they just don't sing it anymore. In fact, they don't sing many of the old gospels songs anymore! I like the choruses that they now sing, but there is just something about those old gospels hymn!!! Thanks for sharing!
