Well, here I am again. A friend of mine wants to learn this gospel song, and I remember only scraps of the lyrics.

The chorus goes:

"Oh, the glory gates are ever open wide
Inviting the world to come
Oh, the glory gates are ever open wide
To welcome the weary home."

The first verse starts out with something like 'I'm looking for the city built of God' and then later with, 'I'm walking now the path that Jesus trod and his face I soon shall see', etc, etc.

Does anybody out there know this song? Jerry? WYSI?

Thanks, muchly.
