Representative Text

1 When the tears bedew the eyes,
Heaven is not far away;
When the heart for cleansing cries,
Heaven is not far away.

Chorus:
Praise the Lord I now can say,
Heaven is not far away;
When the soul is right with Jesus,
Heaven is not far away

2 When your sins are all confessed,
Heaven is not far away;
When you find sweet peace and rest,
Heaven is not far away. [Chorus]

3 You will then be written down,
Heaven is not far away;
For a mansion and a crown,
Heaven is not far away. [Chorus]

4 Come and find the Saviour now,
Heaven is not far away;
When you at His footstool bow,
Heaven is not far away. [Chorus]
