“Heaven Awaits” by Margaret Cagle

I’ve traveled this long road of life.

I’ve seen happiness; I’ve seen strife.

I’ve served God from place to place,

Telling the story, saved by grace.

 

Many miles I have traveled here,

Some sad, some filled with cheer,

But my weary soul will feel its best

When one day it enters Heaven’s rest.

 

I must serve the Lord here below

Until He says, “It’s time to go.

“I must go about, trying to do good,

Pleasing God the way I should.

 

Going home will really be great,

But I should work here while I wait.

Still I am yearning more and more

To make my trip to that golden shore.
