​Celebration

This song is by Shirley Caesar and appears on the album Celebration (1985).

Celebration, jubilation
Celebration, jubilation

We're gonna have a great celebration
Of the coming of the Lord from every nation
There'll be no more wars and confusion
We won't deal with no more confusion

Celebration, jubilation
Celebration, jubilation

When the Lord comes back
We'll be ready when he comes
When the Lord comes back
Meet the Father and the son

We gonna have a great celebration
We gonna have a great celebration
We gonna have a great celebration
Of the coming of the Lord from every nation

The millennial reign is gonna surely come
And then that will be the day that we all gonna be as one
There'll be peace throughout the land
We won't have to suffer no more fighting in the land

Celebration, we're gonna have a good time, jubilation, when I behold the Lord's face
Celebration, just one moment in his kingdom, jubilation, gonna be all with him too

When the Lord comes back
We'll be ready when he comes, I'll be ready
When the Lord comes back
Meet the Father and the son

We're gonna have a great celebration, we'll be getting glory
Gonna praise him and never get tired
We won't have to cry no more, no we won't
We'll never have to die no more
Gonna have a celebration, yes we will

When the Lord comes back, I'm gonna be there
We'll be ready when he comes
When the Lord comes back, we're gonna meet him in the air
Meet the Father and the son

We're gonna have a great celebration, we're gonna have a good time
You should come and go with me
We're gonna have a great time praising the Lord, yes we will
We're gonna have a great time, yes we will
Listen, we're gonna praise him in the high fortress
We're gonna praise the Lord in the high fortress
We're gonna praise him, he kept us and he never left us
We're gonna praise the Lord for how he healed our body
We're gonna praise the Lord for how he picked us up and he turned us around
And he put our feet on solid ground, yes he will
Listen, tell the postman what he must do, tell the plumber to get ready too
Tell the children playing in the street
Now listen, tell the mailman, tell everybody you meet
We're gonna have a celebration, yes we will
Listen, tell the governor, tell the mayor, tell the city counselor
We're gonna have a celebration
Tell the doctor and the engineer, tell everybody
