1. 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’.
Refrain: 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;
2. 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.
3. When 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.”
4. We know not when He shall call us, Whether soon the glad summons shall be; But know, when we pass o’er the river, The glory of Jesus we’ll see.
