If I Am To Get To Heaven

 

If I Am To Get To Heaven

 

If I am to get to Heaven I must daily pick up my cross

Destined for eternity; I can fear no earthly loss.

 

If I am to get to Heaven I must travel the narrow way;

Toil and hardship the redemptive toll that I must pay.

 

If I am to get to Heaven and partake in the sublime

I cannot clutch to worldly goods, tainted wealth and fickle dimes.

 

If I am to get to Heaven I must trade the earthly blows,

For the promise of redemption; the desolating woes.

 

If I am to get to Heaven I must nurture in my midst,

Who God has joined by vocation; and crowned jewels He willed exist.

 

If I am to get to Heaven; sanctification my aim alone

A domestic church must needs to guide; souls far from grown.

 

If I am to get to Heaven my children must bloom in Godly virtue,

Pollenating not them alone, but my sinful nature too.

 

If I am to get to Heaven, I achieve it not of my accord;

Instead I resign my will to that of my everlasting Lord.
