When I get to Heaven and when I’m finally home

I’ll be glad to see my loved ones…but I’m headed for the throne.

I know there’s lots of angels there and exciting things to see,

But when I arrive in Heaven, there’s one place I need to be.

This could sound a little selfish, but I want some time with Him;

He’s helped me through so many things and become my closest friend.

He found me when I was broken and had no hope inside.

He breathed in me the breath of life and my spirit came alive.

So you see why I must find Him…even if I have to wait.

I won’t be in a hurry there…if I’m beyond the pearly gate.

He might come out to greet me when I get near His throne.

I’ll run into His arms, I know…as He tells me “Welcome home.”

So many things to thank Him for…where will I begin?

I’ll probably forget every word when I take one look at Him!

Lord, it’s been a long journey, but now I’m finally home;

Could I just stay with You awhile…right here by your throne?

Now you know I’m only dreaming, but one day it will be true.

Do you have dreams of Heaven? I surely hope you do.

And do you know this Jesus…has He become your friend?

Because if you don’t, you need to know you might not be with Him.
