When this earth is over

And my life is done,

I'll be awakened by a trumpet

And the voice of the Father's son.

For a little while, I'll sleep.

But, it won't be for long

Until I reach that judgment seat,

Upon God's Great White Throne.

When He opens up His Book of Life,

I'll know my name appears

Because I've accepted Jesus Christ,

His son, through humble tears.

From His son's forgiveness,

His love and saving grace,

I'll find myself in Heaven;

Walking through those pearly gates.

There won't be any sadness there,

No pain or bitter tears.

For, all these things have passed away,

Along with months and years.

I'll get to talk with the saints of old.

We'll walk on Heaven's shore.

Justified by Jesus' blood,

I'm free forevermore.
