Does anyone know lyrics to this song. I have it on a cd by local folk singers. It's kind of bluesy. Some lyrics: "I will be among the blessed. When my savior calls me home. My songs will sound more sweeter. When the Pearly Gates unfold. Couldn't find it in the DT. Thanks. James

WHEN THE PEARLY GATES UNFOLD
hymn by George B. Lock, 19th of March 1894


I have given up all for Jesus
This vain world is naught to me
All its pleasures are forgotten
In remembering Calvary.
Though my friends despise forsake me
And in me the world looks cold
I've a friend that will stand by me
Till the pearly gates unfold.
Though my friends despise forsake me
And in me the world looks cold
I've a friend that will stand by me
Till the pearly gates unfold.
 

Just beyond the waves of Jordon,
Just beyond the chilly tide,
Blooms the tree of life immortal,
Where the living waters glide.
In that happy land of spirit
Flowers bloom in hills of gold,
And the angels are in waiting
Where the pearly gates unfold.
In that happy land of spirit
Flowers bloom in hills of gold,
And the angels are in waiting
Where the pearly gates unfold.

Perhaps unrelated, but there is an early hymn about 'when the pearly gates unfold'.
Öffne mir die perlenpforten ("Now the pearly gates unfold" is the title of an English version).
Wolfgang Christoph Dessler, 1660-1722, Nürnburg, Germany.

I found Blind Willie McTell's version at the link below. Here's the lyrics he uses:

I have changed my life for Jesus
He's the one to whom I owe
I will be no longer homless
When the Pearly Gates unfold

This short life will soon be over
And my visions will be told
And songs will sound more sweeter
When the Pearly Gates unfold

Yes, I have more friends in glory
Then this Earthly plane can hold
I will be no longer friendless
When the Pearly Gates unfold

This short life will soon be over
And my vision will be told
And songs will sound more sweeter
When the Pearly Gates unfold

When my trials here are over
And we stand on Caanan's shore
Then we'll cry out holy, holy
Holy lord forever more

This short life will soon be over
And my vision will be told
And songs will sound more sweeter
When the Pearly Gates unfold.
