You’ll remember me at the Judgment Day
Upon Your Throne of mercy;
You’ll blot out my sin, so I’ll enter in
And I’ll walk on streets of gold

Many times I sin; many times I fail
And fall short of Your glory;
But You lift me up and You make me stand
So I’ll walk on streets of gold.

Fullness of God concealed in the flesh of man
You laid aside Your glory
On the cross You died to defeat all sin
So we’d walk on streets of gold

Let Your Spirit move over all our lives
To share the Gospel story
That You’ve freed us all from the grip of sin
So we’ll walk on streets of gold
You’ve never made promises lightly
And there are none that You’ve broken
And I know that your word still stands

We’ll walk on streets of gold.
We’ll walk on streets of gold.


All eternity gathered round Your throne
To praise and give You glory
With the cherubim and the seraphim
While we dance on streets of gold.

Let Your Spirit move over all our lives
To share the Gospel story
That You’ve freed us all from the grip of sin
So we’ll walk on streets of gold
So we’ll walk on streets of gold
So we’ll walk on streets of gold

Rev 21:21: The main street of the city is pure gold, like transparent glass.

Revelation 7:11ff   http://niv.scripturetext.com/revelation/7.htm

Isaiah 6:2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.

Colossians 1:5et seq

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

As I recall, the original song, I’ll be watching you,  was composed after the singer divorced from his wife. It struck me as being very bitter, perhaps for good reason; I don’t know.

God, being omniscient, sees everything. Jesus in Matthew 10:29 says: “For only a penny you can buy two sparrows, yet not one sparrow falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. As for you, even the hairs of your head have all been counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth much more than many sparrows!”

Now that’s reassuring!

C131 SV45    [8 May2009]

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every time  you ache
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

Every single day
And every prayer you pray
Every time you stray
Every night and day
Watching over you

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me
Now my pierced heart aches
Each misstep you take

Every time you give
Every sec you live
Every negative
Everything I’ll forgive
Watching over you

When you’re gone, you’re not lost without a trace
I keep you in my sight, always in my Grace
You look around but come now and seek my Face
You are so cold; I want you in my embrace
I keep loving, come now, come now, please

Oh, can’t you see
You belong to me
Now my pierced heart aches
Each misstep you take

Every single day
Every prayer you pray
And every time you stray
Every night and day
I’ll be loving you

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every time  you ache
Every step you take
I’ll be loving you
Watching over you
