SINCE Christ my soul from sin set free

This world has been a Heaven to me;

And ’mid earth’s sorrows and its woe,

’Tis Heaven my Jesus here to know.

O hallelujah, yes, ’tis Heaven,

’Tis Heaven to know my sins forgiven;

On land or sea, what matters where?

Where Jesus is, ’tis Heaven there.


Once Heaven seemed a far-off place,

Till Jesus showed His smiling face;

Now it’s begun within my soul,

’Twill last while endless ages roll.


What matters where on earth we dwell?

On mountain top, or in the dell,

In cottage, or a mansion fair,

Where Jesus is, ’tis Heaven there.
