Representative Text

1 Since Christ my soul from sin set free,
This world has been a Heav'n to me;
And 'mid earth's sorrows and its woe,
'Tis Heav'n my Jesus here to know.

O hallelujah, yes, 'tis Heav'n,
'Tis Heav'n to know my sins forgiv'n;
On land or sea, what matters where?
Where Jesus is, 'tis Heaven there.

2 Once Heaven seemed a far-off place,
Till Jesus showed His smiling face;
Now it's begun within my soul,
'Twill last while endless ages roll. [Chorus]

3 What matters where on earth we dwell?
On mountain top, or in the dell?
In cottage, or a mansion fair,
Where Jesus is, 'tis Heaven there. [Chorus]
