  • Glory to His name, oh, holy, holy
    There's a city where the streets are paved in gold
    A land where the milk and the honey flow
    And a mansion which for me
    'Cause my bible tells the story
    I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
    Green meadows where the little children play
    No sorrow there, just one long happy day
    And none will litter there except the pure and the holy
    I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
    And when I've reached my journey's end
    And if I'm worthy to go in
    Golden streets of glory, I walk on
    And the golden streets of my new home
    Will lead me up to the master's throne
    With the angel band I'll sing
    Glory to His name, oh, holy, holy
    I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
    Hallelujah, I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
    And when I've reached my journey's end
    And if I'm worthy to go in
    Golden streets of glory, I'll walk on
    And the golden streets of my new home
    Will lead me up to the master's throne
    With the angel band I'll sing
    Glory to His name, oh, holy, holy
    I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
    Hallelujah, I just hope my feet are clean enough
    To walk upon the golden streets of glory
