1. My old friends say I'm missing all the good times
Why I live for Jesus they can't understand.
But by the time they realize I'm truly missing
I'll be missing tribulation and living in gloryland.
2. I guess I'm missing an awful lot of earthly treasures,
'Cause I'm not famous and I'm not a millionaire.
But I know for sure I'll not be missing heaven
Where I'm known to all as rich and that beyond compare.
By the time they find me missing, I'll be living over there.
Where there is no reminiscing of the sorrow we have down here.
And by the time they look around them and discover that I'm gone,
I'll be in that final chorus singing round the Master's throne.
