If it is a bluegrass gospel song, this is the one (from Bluegrass Song Lyrics).

LOOKING THROUGH THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

Last night I dreamed of Heaven
I wanted so to enter in
But when the book of life was open
There was my life of sin

CHORUS
I was looking thru the windows of Heaven
I saw the kingdom of God
And there was the foot prints of Jesus
On the path that my Savior had trod.

It seems that I could see my mother
There with Heaven's happy band
With out stretched arms she ran to meet me
But I had waited to late.

Chorus

Sound clip is HERE (by Spruce Pine on 25 Years of Strictly Country); also recorded by Jimm and Jesse; Charlie Moore; the Lewis Family; Carl Butler.

~Masato

The only one I've ever seen beat Masato to the draw is you, Sorcha. I don't listen to much bluegrass gospel unless it's the old "brothers" groups or Doyle Lawson, so this one went right over my head...

Can't help but laugh, Jerry! Hi, Masato!
By the way, I do hold the Mudcat Record for an answer including a link--one minute. I am still trying to do one within the same minite it was posted. Should be possible.

It would be nice if there was a sort of "I beat Masato" diploma issued that we hang on the wall.I have earned a couple, and it would look nice up by my grandfather's rugger cap for Cornwall and my handleless Lancaster Quiz League mug.

Great idea, Greg! We could have t-shirts made. The problem is, they'd be mighty slow movers.

Hi, Helen-
Can you give us the lyrics you have, so we're sure we're talking about the same song?

As we wait to learn which song Helen has in mind, here's a transcription of "Looking Through the Windows of Heaven" as sung by Carl Butler, at the link Masato gave earlier:

LOOKING THROUGH THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

Last night I dreamed of Heaven
I wanted so to enter in
But when the book of life was opened
There was my life of sin

   CHORUS
   I was looking thru the windows of Heaven
   I saw the kingdom of God
   And there was the footprints of Jesus
   On the path that my Savior trod.

Oh, how my teardrops were falling
As I tried to enter heaven's gate
'Twas so sad with the judgement upon me
To find I was now too late
   
   (Chorus)

It seemed that I could see my mother
There with Heaven's happy throng
With outstretched arms she ran to meet me
But I had waited to long.

   (Chorus)

1/
Last night I dreamed of Heaven,
I wanted so to enter in.
But when the Book of Life was opened,
there was my life of sin.

Chorus:
I was looking through the windows of Heaven,
I saw the Kingdom of God.
And there was the footprints of Jesus,
On the path that my Savior had trod.

2/
It seemed that I could see my mother
there in Heaven's happy throng.
With outstretched arms she came to meet me,
but I had waited too long.

3/
Oh, how my teardrops were falling,
as I tried to enter Heaven's gates.
Was so sad with the judgement upon me,
but I had waited too late.
