1 We find many people who can’t understand
Why we are so happy and free.
We’ve crossed over Jordan to Canaan’s fair land,
And this is like Heaven to me.

Refrain 1-3:
Oh, this is like Heaven to me,
Yes, this is like Heaven to me;
I’ve crossed over Jordan to Canaan’s fair land,
And this is like Heaven to me.

2 So when we are happy we sing and we shout;
Some don’t understand us, I see.
We’re filled with the Spirit, there isn’t a doubt,
And this is like Heaven to me. [Refrain]

3 We’ve heard the sweet music, the heavenly chord,
From glory land over the sea;
A soul-thrilling message from Jesus, our Lord,
And this is like Heaven to me. [Refrain]

4 We’re looking for Jesus with glory to come;
’Tis Jesus Who died on the tree.
A cloud of bright angels to carry me home—
Oh, that will be Heaven to me.

Refrain 4:
Oh, that will be Heaven to me,
Yes, that will be Heaven to me;
A cloud of bright angels to carry me home—
Yes, that will be Heaven to me.
