The First Look
from Every Day
I was standing on the banks of a river last night
And I gazed on a city so bright
Pearly gates were swinging open, in the light I could see
Jesus standing with his arms open wide

Golden trumpets were sounding
Heaven's chorus was gathering
All the angels were singing in perfect harmony
Little babies were smiling
Crippled Children were walking
Blinded eyes were being opened
For the first look at Christ the King

There were many who were waiting near the portals that day
For their first glimpse of loved ones so dear
All their cares had been forgotten and their troubles were o'er
As they stood on that beautiful shore

Repeat Chorus
