My only goal is to reach Heaven’s shore
Where earthly things will bother me no more.
I’ll wander those streets paved with gold
And meet with prophets from days of old.
God will smile and take my hand
And lead me through this promised land.
Heaven’s the place I want to be,
Praising God through all eternity.
