Each day I climb a little higher; up the staircase where heaven will be. Sometimes my heart becomes excited; for I am anxious my Jesus to see.

At times I become a little weary; as through the valleys of life I roam. I always have strength to keep climbing; for I long to see my heavenly home.

Nothing on earth can ever stop me; as the sunset of life grows dim. One day I will step over the horizon; and forever I will rest there with Him.
