When I Take My Vacation in Heaven - Lyrics

There so many are taking vacations
To the mountains and lakes and the sea
Where they rest from their cares and their worries
What a wonderful time that must be.

But it seems not my luck to be like them
I must toil through the heat and the cold
Seeking out the lost sheep on the mountains
Bringing wanderers back to the fold.

When I take my vacation in heaven
What a wonderful time that will be
Hearing concerts by the heavenly chorus
And the face of my Saviour I'll see.

Sitting down on the banks of the river
'Neath the shade of the evergreen tree
I shall rest from my burdens forever
Won't you spend your vacation with me?

--- Instrumental ---

Now someday I shall take my vacation
To the city John tells us about
With its foundation walk, oh, so precious
With the gladness of heart I shall shout.

All those sights ever witness by mortals

Can compare with the glory up there
I shall spend my vacation with Jesus
In the place he went on to prepare.

When I take my vacation in heaven
What a wonderful time that will be
Hearing concerts by the heavenly chorus
And the face of my Saviour I'll see.

Sitting down on the banks of the river
'Neath the shade of the evergreen tree
I shall rest from my burdens forever
Won't you spend your vacation with me?.
