In just a little while,
This life will all be gone.
Our troubles will be ended,
For we’ll be going home.
Loved ones will be waiting,
At heaven with open arms.
We’ll walk through the pearly gates,
Never fearing any harm.
On earth we have troubles and trials,
And pain that pierces our flesh.
There’ll be none of that in heaven,
We’ll only enjoy God's best.
There will be mom and dad,
And brothers, and sisters too.
But most of all there's Jesus,
Holding out His arms to you.
He's been waiting for your presence,
So happy to know you're there,
He even loved you while in sin,
Because He's always cared.
So remember when you get discouraged,
And think it’s not worth another mile,
Just think what heaven will be like,
In just a little while.
