Mansion Over the Hilltop

C F C I'm satisfied with just a cottage below, G7 C A little silver and a little gold; F C But in that city where the ransomed will shine, G7 C I want a gold one that's silver lined. Chorus: F C I've got a mansion just over the hilltop, G7 C In that bright land where we'll never grow old; F C And someday yonder we will never more wander, G7 C But walk the streets that are purest gold. Though often tempted, tormented, and tested, And like the prophet my pillow's a stone; And though I find here no permanent dwelling, I know He'll give me a mansion my own 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 harp, and a crown.
