When I Take My Vacation in Heaven
There the weather will always be perfect,
Not a cloud shall sweep over the sky,
And no earthquakes or cyclones shall threaten, In the land of the sweet by and by.
Soon there's going to be an excursion I am booked for a ride in the air;
You're invited to share my vacation,
And the feast with our Bridegroom to share.
There will be no space given to smokers,
And no card parties there are allowed;
All the back-biters, liars, and gossips Could not stand such a wonderful crowd,
But the old gospel train will be ringing With the shout of the glorified throng,
Who are going on their vacation with Jesus; You are invited to go along.
Mrs. E.N. Campbell got this song from Miss Ruth Howardton about 1930. She sang it at Lawrence. There are more verses and a chorus, but this is all she could remember. It could possibly be in print.
