I Have A Goodly Heritage


I have a goodly heritage
That nothing can destroy,
A mansion fair, prepared for me
In realms of endless joy,
Where everlasting light abides
And shadows cannot fall;
No gloomy days, no weary nights,
For God is over all.

Refrain:
My heart keeps singing, yes, my heart keeps singing,
I have a goodly heritage that nothing can destroy;
My heart keeps singing, songs of praises singing,
I have a goodly heritage in realms of endless joy.

I have a goodly heritage,
Not in this world below,
But in the blessed home above
Where living waters flow;
And as I journey heavenward,
Despite of earthly fears,
The beacon light of God’s dear love
Beams brightly through the years. [Refrain]

I have a goodly heritage,
What can my soul dismay!
The Lord shall be my dwelling place,
My true and living Way;
And as I travel to the home
He has prepared for me,
My heart keeps singing all the time,
His blessed face I’ll see. [Refrain]
