    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.
