1. One day when I was feeling kinda sad and blue
With nothing going on and nothing else to do,
A friend of mine came by and said, "Whey don't we go down
To the all day singing and dinner on the ground?"
2. Well, right away I found myself seated in a pew,
Gathered with the people, enjoying something new.
But the thing that I liked better than dinner on the ground
Was when everybody joined right in and sang the glory down.
I'm in the way, the bright and shining way.
I'm in the gloryland way.
With their faces all aglow and such a happy sound
Everybody joined right in and sang the glory down.
3. Well, soon I got so happy, my hands were clapping, too.
My cup was overflowing and I was feeling new.
So, when they started singing, "I was lost but now I'm found,"
I opened up my heart and helped them sing the glory down.
4. Now I'm a happy Christian and longing for the day
When Gabriel sounds the trumpet and we're all called away.
When the saints go marching in and harps are passed around,
We'll all gather 'round the throne and sing the glory down.
And we'll sing ---------
