Sweet Heaven In My View

 

Got sweet heaven in my view hallelujah

On my journey I press on praise the lord

For I'm bound for that holy city

Got sweet heaven in my view

Oh my mother she died and left me

I'm alone in this world I'm alone all alone

And my father he wont own me

Got to find me another home

 

Oh you need not talk about me

Just because I am crippled and blind

For I've got my ticket purchased

I'll reach heaven  on time

 

And when I get to heaven

Take a seat and sit right down

Looking up to my heavenly father

Looking for a robe and a crown
