Refrain:
I want to go to Heaven, that Home so bright and fair;
So beautiful, and—best of all—Dear Jesus will be there!

1 I want to see the city away beyond the sky,
With pearly gates and walls of shining stones so great and high;
Beside the crystal river there is a fruitful tree;
And, oh, I want to see the mansions made for you and me! [Refrain]

2 I never will get hurt there, I’ll never have to cry;
No pain or sickness there in Heav’n, and none will ever die;
There Satan cannot tempt me to even once be bad,
For sin can never enter Heav’n—I’ll be so safe, so glad! [Refrain]

3 I’ll see old Noah, Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Paul,
And all the millions since that time who gave to God their all;
The many little children who’ve died before they’re old
Are singing ’round the throne of God, and play on streets of gold! [Refrain]

4 Oh, there I’ll be so happy with friends both old and young;
The lame and blind, now healed and well, praise God in endless song;
The angels too will join us; and dressed in spotless white,
We’ll not get tired of praising God, for there there is no night! [Refrain]
