"LONGING FOR HEAVEN"
I’m not moving no more down here below
My next move is Heaven for sure…for sure!
And I’ve got a longing…a longing to go!
So, come on down, Lord, and take me on Home!
I’ve got a longing for Heaven, dear Lord!
To be in Your presence Whom I adore.
I’ve got a longing…a longing for Heaven
To be with Jesus forevermore!
I’ve got a longing for Heaven…for Heaven
Where there’s no sorrow or pain…no sorrow or pain.
My mansion’s all ready for me to roam
So, send down your angels, Lord, to carry me on Home!
I’ve got a longing for Heaven…a longing to be with Jesus forevermore! Forevermore!

Dad told us when we visited them in Pennsylvania in September, “We’re not moving anymore. Our next move is Heaven!” and he pointed to the sky!
II Corinthians 5:8 – “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”
Luke 16:22, 23 – “…the beggar died and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom…(in heaven).”
John 14:1-4 – “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Mark 12:25 – “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”
