Lyrics

He Holds the Key

Written By: Robert G. Wittkowski

He holds the key to the mantion he made for me. Juses asid he was going to prepare a place for me to call my home when I leave this old world for that mantion made of love. With streets of gold and skies of blue where the angle choir sing.where I'll live for him for ever in that mantion he made for me. He holds the key to the mantion the one he made for me, he holds the key for life with god for eternity. This key I hold was made for me at calvery, he holds the key to the mantion he made for me. This old body will be brand new. These old eyes again will see. I'll great friends that went be for me that for so long I've yernd to see. But the greatest I've longed for is to kneel at jesus feet when he hands the key to the mantion the one he made for me. He holds the key to the mantion the one he made for me, he holds the key to life with god for eternity, This key I hold was made for me at calvery, he holds the key to the mantion he made for me. He holds the key to the mantion he made for me.
