I’m Living In Heaven To-day

classic poetry header
*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.


They tell of the bliss of the ransomed above
   In the Land that is far, far away;
But Jesus so fills my glad heart with His love
   That I’m living in heaven to-day.

They tell of the pleasures that never decline
   And the treasures that never decay;
But Jesus Himself and His riches are mine,
   And I’m living in heaven to-day.

No sorrow e’er comes to that beautiful shore,
   And their tears have been all wiped away;
But Jesus has taught me to sorrow no more,
   And He fills me with heaven to-day.

For heaven is Jesus and Jesus is mine,
   And His presence is with me alway;
He fills me so full of His glory divine
   That I’m living in heaven to-day.

I now have a joy that they never can know,
   In that Land that is far, far away;
I’m seeking and saving poor sinners below,
   And this is my heaven to-day.
