1. Through this span of life we are often tempted,

Searching for things with an earthly gain.
I have set my goal for a home in Heaven
Some day with Jesus I will reign.


Jesus is waiting (waiting with a robe and crown)
Happy I'll be to lay my heavy burdens down.
(For I shall) meet Him in Heaven on the Judgment Day.
I know that Jesus is waiting. He will guide me all the way.

2. As I travel here many days are weary,
Burdens sometimes are so hard to bear.
Then I see my dear Savior hanging on the cross,
And I know that Jesus is waiting for my entance there.


3. Many times I pray for His love to guide me.
Guide me from pitfalls and this earthly strife
And then I see a light shining through the clouds of Heaven.
I know that Jesus is waiting with eternal life.
