Heaven is our eternal home Where we behold the Lord, God Almighty In all His glory and splendor, And sing His praises along with throngs of angels. The path to the eternal home May be sprinkled with picturesque waterfalls Along smooth, well-trodden paths Or through slippery and rocky terrains. When you walk through the slippery grounds, Walk courageously by the Gospel Through which you have been saved By holding fast to the Word of God. When you trek through rocky paths, Hold fast to the Rock of our salvation Who is our refuge and strength Trusting His everlasting arms. When you walk through dark forests, Hold aloft the word of God Which is a lamp to the feet And a light to the path. When a boulder obstructs your path, Wait hopefully on the Lord Renewing your strength And soar on wings like eagles. When you feel tired and weary, Quench your thirst From the stream of living water And partake of the heavenly manna, the Word of God. When you walk across Pristine and serene valleys, Sing God’s praises with thanksgiving Refreshed by the morning dew, the Word of God.
