The Welcome News My Soul Makes Glad


The welcome news my soul makes glad,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
If thou wilt let my Saviour in,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine.

Refrain:
‘Tis Heaven on earth to think, to know,
Though I want, though I roam,
My mansion’s made, my Master waits,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is home.

My weary soul is comforted,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
When thy soul clings to Christ my Lord,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]

My burdens fall, my cares are gone,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine;
When thou wilt let Christ bear thy sins,
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]

In hours of day, in dreams of night,
Heaven is mine, Heaven is mine
O Christian, watch, and pray, and praise;
Heaven is thine, Heaven is thine. [Refrain]
