Dottie Rambo - Build My Mansionrate me
(Just) build my mansion next door to Jesus
And tell the angels I'm coming home
It doesn't matter who lives around me
Just so my mansion sets near the throne
I have no castles no earthly kingdom
But my cabin will do 'til I get home
My mansion's yonder on the hills of glory
Oh I hope my mansion sets near God's throne
It seems like it's been a long time ago and yet just yesterday
That Mom and Dad sat me down and told me about Jesus
They said Son, there 's a land and it's called Heaven
I'll never forget that day I'm saved because of it
My mama’s mansion may be close by me,
Or across the golden avenue.
She was the first one to ever tell me of Heaven,
And the very first one, Lord, to ever tell me of You.
also there is a wording problem in the third paragraph: "a long time ago and get just yesterday..." the get sounds wrong.
I think that is should go like this: "Its been a long time ago and but it seems like just yesterday..."
