I wanna go to Heaven, and pick a never-fading flower,
From the mountain overlooking the temple of my God.
I wanna go to Heaven, where all is light and glory,
How I long to be with Jesus! How I long to be with God!
Some times I think that I could stay here no longer.
I feel very lonely here, for I’ve seen a better land!
Oh! That I had wings like a dove,
Then would I fly away, and be at rest.
I wanna go to Heaven, I wanna hear the voice of Jesus,
“You have washed your robes in my blood, stood stiffly for my truth.”
And when I get to Heaven I’ll cast my crown at Jesus feet!
I wanna praise His name forever!
He has done so much for me!
I wanna go to Heaven, I wanna pledge my love to Jesus,
“I will gird myself and serve you, for you suffered much for me.”
And when I get to Heaven I wanna sit at Jesus’ table!
Oh! To eat the fruit of that land,
Go back to earth no more!
