I Have a Place in Heaven

Please don't sing sad songs for me, Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place
Away from pain and tears.

It's far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side.

My life on earth was very good,
As earthly life can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.

My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new.
