I’m on the way to Heav’n above,
To sing the songs of joy and love,
That I by faith can almost hear,
As to my home I’m drawing near.


I’m on the way to Hea­ven above;
Hallelujah, be for­ev­er,
Unto the One who gives me His love.

Oh, blessèd thought when in that land,
With Christ, my Lord, I gladly stand;
Then I shall kneel at His dear feet,
And worship Him with joy complete.


Oh, happy time, oh, blessèd day,
When sorrows all have passed away;
With all the saints I then shall sing
Eternal praises to my king.
