I'm satisfied with just a cottage below
A little silver and a little gold
But in that city where the ransomed will shine 
I want a gold one that's silver lined

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop 
In that bright land where we'll never grow old
And some day yonder we will never more wander 
But walk on the streets that are purest gold

Don't think me poor or deserted or lonely 
I'm not discouraged I'm heaven bound
I'm but a pilgrim in search of a city
I want a mansion a harp and a crown 

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop 

I've got a mansion just over the hilltop
