Representative Text

1 I love to think of heav’n
Where white-robed angels are,
Where many a friend is gathered safe
From fear and toil and care.

Chorus:
There’ll be no sorrow there,
There’ll be no sorrow there,
In heav’n above where all is love,
There’ll be no sorrow there.

2 I love to think of heav’n
Where my Redeemer reigns,
Where rapturous songs of triumph rise
IN endless, joyous strains. [Chorus]

3 I love to think of heav’n
The saints eternal home,
Where palms and robes and crowns ne’er fade
And all their joys are one. [Chorus]

4 I love to think of heav’n
That promised land so fair,
O how my raptured spirit longs
To be forever there. [Chorus]
