Oh It Is Jesus

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

For many years I have heard about a City
Jesus went to prepare for those who have believed
Since that blessed day when I first came to know Him
I’ve been longing for a place I’ve never been

There’s jasper walls, a crystal river, and mansions fair
Oh the sight that we’ll behold are far beyond compare
And all the beauty and the splendor that these eye will see
Could never make it Heaven for me

Oh it is Jesus that makes it Heaven
Not the gates of pearl and streets paved with gold
Oh it is Jesus that makes it Heaven
He’s the reason that I’m longing now to go

Just to see the face of Jesus will be worth it all
I’ve been listening and I’m waiting to hear the call
And I will go to meet the One who gave His life for me
And I will thank Him face to face for Calvary

Oh it is Jesus that makes it Heaven
Not the gates of pearl and streets paved with gold
Oh it is Jesus that makes it Heaven
He’s the reason that I’m longing now to go

Yes, He’s the reason that I’m longing now to go
