NOT HALF HAS EVER BEEN TOLD

GLORY

I have read of a beautiful city,


Far away in the kingdom of God,


I have read how its walls are of jasper,


How its streets are all golden and broad.


In the midst of the street is life’s river,


Clear as crystal and pure to behold;


But not half of that city’s bright glory,


To mortals has ever been told



CHORUS


//Not half has ever been told//


Not half of that city’s bright glory


To mortals has ever been told. 


(Final: Ever told)



2


I have read of bright mansions in heaven,


Which the Savior has gone to prepare,


And the saints, who on earth have been faithful,


Rest forever with Christ over there


There no sin ever enters, not sorrow,


The inhabitants never grow old,


But not half of the joys that await them, 


to mortals has ever been told.



3


I have read of white robes for the righteous,


Of bright crowns which the glorified wear,


When our Father shall bid the “Come, enter, 


and my glory eternally share.”


How the righteous are ever more blessed,


As they walk thru’ the streets of pure gold,


But not half of the wonderful story,


To mortals has ever been told.



4


I have read of a Christ so forgiving,


That vile sinners may ask and receive,


Peace and pardon, from every transgression,


If when asking they only believe.


I have read how He’ll guide and protect us,


If for safety we enter his fold,


But not half of his goodness and mercy,


To mortals has ever been told.
