The holy hills of Heaven call me
To mansions bright across the sea
Where loved ones wait and crowns are given
When the hills of home start calling me

This house of clay is but a prison
Bars of bone hold my soul
But the doors of clay are gonna burst wide open
When the angel sets my spirit free
I'll take my flight like a mighty eagle
When the hills of home start calling me

I see loved ones over yonder
Tears are gone and hearts are free
And from the throne of my Savior beckons
And the hills of home are calling me

This house of clay is but a prison
Bars of bone hold my soul
But the doors of clay are gonna burst wide open
When the angel sets my spirit free
I'll take my flight like a mighty eagle
When the hills of home start calling me
Calling me

    I think I have this. I will look on Sunday! I hear y'all singing this every time I think of it. I loved listening to your family sing.

    This is one of the rare songs that would not only remind us we have heaven to focus but also that the angel guilding our life may be allowed to set our spirit to eternal trip at any time unknown to us.

    Heaven is calling all the believers to come home. The body of flesh is a bag called a prison that holds our bones. One day the earth will burst wide open and the saints will be called to a home where we will be free like eagles to live with our savior in a mansion forver and ever. What a day that will be.

    There's a home for me beyond the curtain of time. When this earthly vessel gives way to immortality, i'll fly away like an eagle

    Magnificent testimony of the love of god. Dottie rambo was given such a gift and she shared it with many. Now, she is singing praises to the lord in heaven.
