Another fantastic performance by Rhonda Vincent. This is real American bluegrass country music.

Lyrics

 

When my way was long

And all hope was gone

I saw eternity growing near

I reached out to take god's hand

He gave me strength and helped me stand

To walk the stairwell leading to

His promise land, promise land

His promise land, so softly sing

The angels band

My soul is filled with perfect peace

And love divine

 

Come in my child, and take your place

A table filled by god's embrace

I journey to my final home

Sweet promise land

Tears will never fill my eyes

I've reached my home

I'm in the sky

This perfect place of splendid beauty

I shall remain,

No more struggles, no more strife

God give to us eternal life

Open your heart and journey

To his promise land

Promise land,

His promise land, so softly sings

The angels band

My soul is filled with perfect peace

And love divine

 

Come in my child, and take your place

A table filled by god's embrace

I journey to my final home

I journey to my final home

His promise land

Tears will never fill my eyes

I've reached my home

His promised land.
