Hymn and Scripture Challenge #10 - When We All Get To Heaven

Happy September Saturday, my friends!
I must tell you that I'm very excited because the Hymn and Scripture Challenge is back up and running! YAY! I hope you'll all be excited to see my pages continue. For those of you that don't know (or forget) Patter took a bit of a break from posting them as she made a big cross-country move with her family! I have really missed them, so it was happy news for me when the new one was posted! :o)
There's also a little bit of a funny story behind this one. During the days that I was working on "Jane's" tribute page, I was reminded of times in the past when I sang in the choir with both Jane and my Dad. Such sweet memories! There was one song that kept coming to my mind over and over and I sang it the entire time that I worked on Jane's page. At one point I even told God that it should really be one of the Hymn and Scripture Challenge picks. Yes, you guessed it...this is the song! Too fun, right? You also guessed right if you guessed that this is another one of my FAVORITE hymns! For those of you that are new to my blog, I have called every hymn my favorite! lol
I have sung this hymn in church as far back as I can remember. It's one of those songs that are always sung with joy and exuberance...and frequently brings on happy tears! This is the chorus:

"When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus, we'll sing and shout the victory!" 

Isn't that beautiful? Amen! I chose verses that picked up on the rejoicing and the victory that we will have with Jesus! Please read them on my page below:

Here's a video for you. It's the only one I could find that sounded as happy as we do when we sing it in church! I'm just sorry it's not prettier to look at! lol

When we all get to Heaven, what a joyful day of rejoicing it will be! Oh to sing with all the saints who have gone before!
I love this song and often find myself humming it for no particular reason. Does that make it one of my favourites?
Love your page, and the lovely distressed panels, and the beautiful buttoned flowers!

I just love it Nancy and how you took the words and highlighted with them. You are just on top of this one. And yes, it is one of my favorite also.

And I am happy for you that this is up and going again, is so obvious that you were always inspired by this challenge. I'm happy also, because each of these posts of yours remind me of THE BEST church hymns from my childhood. This is one of my dad's absolute favorites...maybe his #1 pick...hope I never forget the sound of his voice singing it so confidently!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Another wonderful page Nancy! I really like that punch you used. It made a really cool top for the tag. This really is one of those hymns that sticks with you despite the fact that we've sung it forever. LOL Thanks for sharing your lovely creation. Hugs!
