There’s a beautiful place called Heaven,
It is hidden above the bright blue;
Where the good, who from earth ties are riven,
Live and love an eternity thro’.


Above the bright blue, the beautiful blue,
Jesus is waiting for me and for you;
Heaven is there, not far from our sight,
Beautiful city of light.

This land of sweet rest awaits us;
Some day it will break on our view;
’Tis promised by Christ the Redeemer,
To His followers faithful and true.


When He left His beloved disciples,
He said, as He bade them adieu,
I go to prepare you a mansion,
And soon I’ll be sending for you.


We know not when He shall call us,
Whether soon, the glad summons shall be;
But we know, when we pass o’er the river,
The glory of Jesus we’ll see.
