Jesus is waiting to welcome me home
to live with him on that heavenly shore.
Can’t you see the angels dancing on the wall?
Or feel the breeze from their fluttering wings?
There’s a light shining all around them as Heaven’s choir sings.
Now tell me, why would I want to stay down here?
When I could be made whole?
