I’ve been promised a wonderful inheritance,
An amazing heritage God has bequeathed me.
Yet now, it’s not in my sight,
The promise has yet been given.
Even so, I know that it exists,
My treasure is waiting for me, this I know.
For Christ is holding it for safe keeping,
With His nail scarred hand, He guards it.
So I will stand firm in my service to God,
For my King, I will persevere in His work.
For the day will come that I’ll get my prize,
My reward, I will soon receive.
When I see my Savior, will I get my inheritance,
My heritage is fulfilled when I behold Jesus Christ.
