My heart can sing when I pause to remember
A heartache here is but a stepping stone
Along a path that’s always winding upward
This troubled world is not my final home

But until then my heart will go on singing
Until then with joy I’ll carry on
Until the day my eyes behold that city
Until the day God calls me home

The things of earth will dim and lose their value
If we recall they’re borrowed for awhile
And things of earth that cause this heart to tremble
Remembered there will only bring a smile

So, until then my heart will go on singing
Until then with joy I’ll carry on
Until the day my eyes behold that city
Until the day God calls me home
Until the day my eyes behold that city
Until the day God calls me home
