Representative Text

1 I am rejoicing in Jesus,
He who from sin set me free;
But when my eyes shall behold Him,
That will be heaven for me.

That will be heaven for me,
When I my Savior shall see;
O what a day that will be in the glory-land!

2 Glorious hope of the morning,
After the shadows of night;
Wonderful visions of rapture
When faith is changed into sight. [Refrain]

3 Battles there all shall be over,
Peace reigns supreme on the throne;
Joy dwells forever unhindered,
Sorrow and pain are unknown. [Refrain]

4 When I shall enter the portals
Over the bright jasper sea,
Jesus will give us a welcome,
That will be heaven for me. [Refrain]
