Heaven's Joy Awaits

When we leave this low land,
We will cross the Jordan;
Past the chilling torrent
Heaven's joy awaits.

Just beyond the blue horizon,
Just above the starry sky;
Far above this land of sorrow,
Way above each tear and sigh.

Just a few more miles before us,
Just a little while to wait;
Soon we'll sing redemption’s chorus
Heaven's joy awaits.

Heaven's breeze is blowing,
Gently to recalling;
I will soon be going,
Through the Pearly Gates.
