1. My mamma and daddy talked about going home
Since I was just a babe on their knees
They said that nothing compared to what was waiting up there
How one day we would finally be free.
Well I've never seen it, but I keep on believing
It will be a place like I've never know
I keep my eyes on the sky, 'cause my soul wants to fly
Lord, my heart is ready to go

I wanna know how it feels
To make my way down the streets of gold.
I wanna know how it feels
To have a talk with the Saints of old.
I wanna know what it's like
To rest my feet by the River of Life
I've heard of Heaven and I know that it's real
I wanna know how it feels.

2. Sometimes I get weary from this life that I live
It seems that peace is something I'll never find
I try to lighten my load when all that I've got to show
Is seven hundred things on my mind
And I'm seeing visions of the crystal clear river
Where sin's forgotten without a trace
More than I've ever dreamed, my eyes wanna see
The look of love on my Savior's face

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus (I'm ready to know how it feels)

I've heard of heaven and I know that it's real
I wanna know how it feels
