This Thought Fills My Heart And Remains


This tho’t fills my heart and remains all the time,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today;
It makes all the chords of my soul now to chime,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today.

Chorus:
I am trav’ling toward heaven today,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today;
When the night-watch comes on,
‘Tis my tho’t when alone,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today.

Tho’ often from Satan temptations are strong,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today;
My soul has found vict’ry and sweet peace in song,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today. [Chorus]

The night cometh on when my life’s work is o’er,
I am trav’ling toward heaven today;
The ransomed I’ll join, and, redeemed evermore,
‘Twill be heaven that glorious day. [Chorus]
