Representative Text

1 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.

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

2 Out on the hill of that wonderful country,
Happy, contented and free,
Loved ones are waiting and watching my coming,
Heaven holds all to me. [Chorus]

3 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. [Chorus]
