1. On the mountain of Zion beyond the blue sky,

Stands a city so wondrous and fair;

I expect to depart for that land, by and by,

For I’m laying my treasure up there.

I am laying my treasure up there, up there

In that beautiful city so fair;

When its glories unfold I’ll have riches untold,

For I’m laying my treasure up there.

2. There’s a mansion awaiting god’s people, I’m told,

Which the Saviour has gone to prepare;

There the walls are of jasper, the streets are of gold,

I am laying my treasure up there.

3. All the love of my heart, and my soul, mind and strength,

And the work that with Jesus I share,

Are but some of the riches I’ll find there at length,

For I’m laying my treasure up there.

4. So altho’ a poor pilgrim on earth I may roam,

Ever constant in watching and prayer;

Soon I’ll hear the glad summons to start for my home,

For I’m laying my treasure up there.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
