Can’t wait to get to Heaven;
Oh I’ll be so happy there
When I walk down that ivory hall
And run up those crystal stairs.
Oh I’ll know Him when I see Him,
I’d know Him anywhere.
Then all my struggles will be lifted
When I reach that kingdom in the air.
Can’t wait to shout hallelujah!
No more earthly burdens will I bear.
‘Cause when I see the Heavenly throne,
I know… Yes I know…
He’ll be waiting for me there!
