The welcome news my soul makes glad,
Heav’n is mine, Heav’n is mine;
If thou wilt let my Savior in,
Heav’n is thine, Heav’n is thine.

Refrain

’Tis Heav’n on earth to think, to know,
Though I want, though I roam,
My mansion’s made, my Master waits,
Heav’n is mine, Heav’n is home.

My weary soul is comforted,
Heav’n is mine, Heav’n is mine;
When thy soul clings to Christ my Lord,
Heav’n is thine, Heav’n is thine.

Refrain

My burdens fall, my cares are gone,
Heav’n is mine, Heav’n is mine;
When thou wilt let Christ bear thy sins,
Heav’n is thine, Heav’n is thine.

Refrain

In hours of day, in dreams of night,
Heav’n is mine, Heav’n is mine;
O Christian, watch, and pray and praise;
Heav’n is thine, Heav’n is thine.
