In childhood I heard of a heaven
I wondered if it could be true
That there were sweet mansions eternal
Somewhere up there beyond the blue
I wondered if people really go there
Then one day sweet Jesus came in
And I had a vision of heaven
My soul through all heaven I'll spend

Heaven (happy home above)
Heaven (land of peace and love)
Oh, it makes me feel like traveling on
Heaven (supernal), Heaven (eternal)
I'm so glad it's real

Then I got a vision of heaven
My soul overflowing with love
My heart like the Savior's is broken
For friends that will miss that home above
Then a voice from the hills of Judea
Still ringing words of sweet belief
Worlds of attraction don't thrill me
My soul has a change of relief
