I have my eyes set on a city above


I have my eyes set on a city above

I have laid all my gain but to inherit the kingdom beyond

Mother earth forgive me, but I cannot accept your inheritance

I refuse to acquire your property and attain your glory

Discarding all earthly comfort only to be a foreigner


I refuse your citizenship only to be a traveler

For tomorrow comes and I depart going back home

My brethren, laid in grave in the Lord await

Till home I reach and my Savior is expectant

That I will overcome and reign with Him forever


Forgive me friends and family

That I have become a foreigner in my motherland

Not that I have loved you less but my gaze is set only ahead

Join me in this walk, lets look ahead and beyond

Set our eyes on the city above.


A city whose builder and maker is the Lord.
