Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near;
Give your heart to Him, I pray,
When Jesus is near.
Place your trust in Him, dear friend,
He will keep you to the end,
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.

Will you not repent, believe,
When Jesus is near?
Peace and pardon now receive,
When Jesus is near.
He will not your prayer refuse,
Come and now the Savior choose,
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.

Are you coming home today,
When Jesus is near?
Do not longer stay away,
When Jesus is near.
Cast your burden on the Lord,
He has promised in His word,
Heaven is not far away,
When Jesus is near.
