Representative Text

1 When days of toil have all gone by,
And I my dear Lord shall see,
A word of welcome when we shall meet
I know will make heav’n for me.

Refrain:
Heaven for me, O it will be!
When Jesus whispers a welcome to me,
Heaven for me, O it will be!
When Jesus whispers a welcome to me.

2 The Father’s house, the mansions fair,
My home shall forever be,
But one sweet word for the Lord I love
I know will make heav’n for me. [Refrain]

3 He saved me from my lost estate,
From sin he has set me free,
And just to see him when he shall come
I know will be heav’n for me. [Refrain]
