Verse 1
There's a place in Heaven, prepared for me
When the toils of this life are over
When the Saints are clothed in white
Before the throne
Singing praises forever more

Verse 2
In my Father's house, there are mansions bright
If He said, then I believe it's true
There's a place for me, beyond the sky
Brothers and Sisters, there is one for you

Chorus
Jesus, He, promised me a home over there
Jesus promised me a home over there
No more sickness, sorrow, pain or cares
Jesus promised me a home over there

Repeat chorus

    My heart is heavy, but my soul is lifted knowing that jesus is coming back to this old earth, and take us home with him. As i listen my eyes are tearful knowing the day will come when we will see mama and daddy, oh how my soul tenders for that day!

    I find so much comfort in knowing that this life is just a detour & that a better life awaits and that i can look forward to one day being with my loved ones again that have gone on befre me. But my greatest comfort is knowing that one day i'll meet jesus face to face. What a day, what a day!!
