Citizen of Heaven......


My citizenship is in Heaven
Gladly this truth I know
So as each day now passes
Farther from this world I grow

For of this world I am not
I am but a sojourner here
It is Godís Kingdom I seek
My Heavenly home I see clear

Beautiful, bright, eternal
Sweet, lovely and divine
Home of the Lord and the angels
Yes, this very Home is mine

Glorious is this truth, dear Christian
Please let your heart never forget
Your name is in the Book of Life
Indeed forever there it is set

Heaven already is in my heart
Rest and rejoice in Eden I do
Drinking from the Living Water
And eating Godís every word true

For eternal life starts not some day
Upon being born again it did start
Yes, eternal life I live right now
And joy overflows from my heart

So sing with me, sweet sister
Rejoice with me, beloved brother
Let us joyfully thank and praise God
And let us gladly uplift one another

Eternal treasures do await us
For each a crown to perfectly fit
The glory of God we shall see
Forever on the Throne He does sit

Worry not, dear one, of this world
Let not the trials weigh you down
Remember your citizenship Above
Think upon the treasures and crown

For our citizenship is in Heaven
Yes, gladly this truth we know
As each day now passes here
Farther from this world we grow

Yes, of this world we are not
We are but sojourners here
It is Godís Kingdom we seek
Our Heavenly home we see clear

If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God.
