Words and music: Ira Stamphill From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Mansion Over the Hilltop C F C Iím 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 thatís silver lined. Chorus: F C Iíve got a mansion just over the hilltop, G7 C In that bright land where weíll 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 pillowís a stone; And though I find here no permanent dwelling, I know Heíll give me a mansion my own Donít think me poor or deserted or lonely; Iím not discouraged, Iím heaven bound. Iím just a pilgrim in search of a city, I want a mansion, a harp, and a crown.Home
