Verse 1
They have reach'd yon golden shore,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
They shall hunger there no more,
They are ever free from pain,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n.

Verse 2
There they need no light or lamp,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
There they have perpetual light,
Jesus is their shining light,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n.

Verse 3
Ah, the streets are made of gold,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
There the glory never fades,
For the flock of Christ they are,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n

Verse 4
It is never chilly there,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
For their winter is all past,
Every day is ever bright,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n

Verse 5
They have all ceased from their fight,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
Jesus Christ has saved their souls,
They with Him walk hand in hand,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n.

Verse 6
They shall no more cry nor weep,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
Jesus is always with them,
With Him is abundant joy,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n.

Verse 7
Ah, we shall soon join the throng,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n;
We expect our time to come,
When our Lord shall call us home,
Up in heav'n; up in heav'n.
