Words & Mu­sic: Till­it S. Ted­dlie, in Cal­va­ry Hymns, by Ru­fus H. Cor­ne­li­us (Fort Worth, Tex­as: R. H. Cor­ne­li­us, 1915) (🔊 pdf nwc).


Earth holds no treasures but perish with using,
However precious they be;
Yet there’s a country to which I am going:
Heaven holds all to me.


Heaven holds all to me,
Brighter its glory will be;
Joy without measure will be my treasure:
Heaven holds all to me.

Out on the hills of that wonderful country,
Happy, contented and free,
Loved ones are waiting and watching my coming:
Heaven holds all to me.


Why should I long for the world with its sorrows,
When in that home o’er the sea,
Millions are singing the wonderful story?
Heaven holds all to me.
