1 ‘Tis heaven on earth since Jesus came in,
Renewing my life, forgiving my sin;
O’erflowing my cup with joy from above,
And flooding my life with love.

That’s heaven, just heaven,
Real heaven on earth with Jesus,
His pow’r makes me whole,
His love fills my soul
‘Tis heaven on earth with Jesus.

2 To walk with the Lord, to know His sweet will,
To learn when to speak and when to be still;
To go ev’ry day where He’d have me go,
Is heaven on earth below. [Refrain]

3 To feed on His word, to tell of His fame,
To do all I do in His blessed name;
And no other King but Jesus to know
To me is a heav’n below. [Refrain]
