One day soon from earth you’ll go, where you’ll be, I hope you know

Spend a moment now with me, to see the place I hope you see

You don’t want the other place, where pain and darkness fill the space

See the light that’s from above, filled and flowing with God’s love

Ought you should go there instead, make the choice inside your head

Free from sin, your eyes will rise, behold His glory in the skies

To see the One who loves you so, who gave His life so you could go

His home to share up in the sky, and one day learn the reason why

His love He chose to give us here, that freed us from the grip of fear

We don’t deserve to even see, what by His power we can be

His smiling face to us He shows, and all His grace on us bestows

We the angels do behold, hear our stories now unfold

What the angels see always, heaven functions as God says

Walking through the pearl gates, three each way they open face

God upon the throne up high, Jesus seated by His side

Holy, holy ’round the throne, praises go to You alone

Cherubim with wings that fly, while covered, lift Your name up high

And we, like Ezekiel, comprehend what words can’t tell

Dark forces now will spend their might, deceiving folks with their fake light

But their time is running down, with every soul that’s saved they frown

Serving God is our reward, with the chance to use our sword

We await the word of God, at His beckon call we nod

Accomplishing our given task, in His glory now we bask

God inhabits everything, all His people join to sing

Salvation’s song they loud proclaim, loudly singing Jesus’ name

How we were redeemed from sin, God sent His son to save us then

Celebrate the mystery of how the church has come to be

Free from sin we now will stand, in heaven holding Jesus’ hand

Rewards await for earthly loss, things we gave up for the boss

Introducing those we’ve brought, whom Jesus’ blood has fully bought

God has jobs for you and me, working in eternity

Wondrous things await us now, low before His throne we bow

Knowledge of the higher things, the mind of Christ to us now brings

God’s revealed plan now complete, what’s next? hold on to your seat
