Verse 1

 

G
I looked up into heaven

C                             G

A door was opened to me

 

A voice cried come up hither

D7th

And I’ll show you eternity

G                D

In a moment of time

C                       G

In the twinkling of an eye

C                       G

I stood before the throne of God

C        D        G

At the end of time.

 

Chorus

 

G

And I saw Seraphim and Cherubim

D                              D7th

Surround the throne of God

Em

While the saints of all the ages

D                         D7th

Stood in clean white linen gowns

G

And they cried Holy, Holy, Holy

D                       D7th

As the elders cast their crowns

C

I knew I was in heaven

G

My eternal home

C     D7th              G

Worshipping God before his throne

 

Verse 2

 

G

An angel cried who is worthy

C                    G

To open the little book

 

I wept for there was no one found

D                       D7th                           

Anywhere they looked

G            D

Then the Lamb of God

C                G

Stood as one freshly slain

C                        G

He loosed the seven seals

C     D            G

And began to read

 

Chorus

 

G

And I saw Seraphim and Cherubim

D                             D7th

Surround the Lamb of God

Em

While the saints of all the ages

D                         D7th

Stood in clean white linen gowns

G

And they cried Holy, Holy, Holy

D                       D7th

As the elders cast their crowns

C

I knew I was in heaven

G

My eternal home

C        D7th              G

Worshipping the Lamb before God’s throne

 

Verse 3

 

G

I looked down through a sea of glass

C                                  G

To a new havens and a new earth

D                   D7th

A voice spoke it is finished I’ve completed all my work

G                    D                 C                G

Now the tabernacle of God is with men forevermore

C                              G                 C    D         G

New Jerusalem, the golden city, our eternal home

 

Chorus

 

G

And I saw Seraphim and Cherubim

D                             D7th

Dance on streets of gold

Em

While the saints of all the ages

D                          D7th

Worshipped God upon His throne

G

And they sang Holy, Holy, Holy

D                       D7th

As the elders cast their crowns

C

I knew I was in heaven

G

My eternal home

C               D7th          G

In New Jerusalem before God’s throne
