What Will It Be Like Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

He spoke of a morning and an uncloudy day
With no sorrow and hardship to bear
He said that where I am you also shall stay
What will it be like to be there?

He spoke of a life where we'd never grow old
In a city he's gone to prepare
He said that the streets would be paved with pure gold
What will it be like to be there?

What will it be like to be there?
What will it be like to be there?
Forever and ever in heaven so fair
What will it be like to be there?

He spoke of a trumpet when the dead would all rise
And we wonder how long it will be
It's written the scales will all fall from our eyes
And the face of the master we'll see.

He spoke of forever where love never dies
And the souls of our loved ones we'll see
Where the demons can't harm us and are met with demise
How beautiful Heaven must be.

What will it be like to be there?
What will it be like to be there?
Forever and ever in heaven so fair
What will it be like to be there?
