1 Look away, dear pilgrim, to heaven above:
Jesus is waiting for you;
Set aside earth’s striving, and seek treasure of
That realm beyond earthly view.

Refrain:
Look away to heaven—what glory awaits!
Watch, lest this world drag you down;
Dropping all distractions, then press for those gates—
There is your mansion and crown!

2 Never will you find what you need here to live:
This world cannot satisfy;
Jesus has the joy that this world cannot give,
And greater joys are on high. [Refrain]

3 Just a moment more and the trumpet shall sound—
Jesus is waiting for me;
Heaven has my heart-strings, for heaven I’m bound,
With Him in heaven I’ll be! [Refrain]
