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.
