How Can I Get Into Heaven?

In my Father's house are  
many mansions; if it were
not so, I would have told  
you; for I go to prepare   
a place for you. And if I   
go and prepare a place for
you, I come again, and will
receive you unto myself;   
that where I am, there ye  
may be also. John 14:2-3  

Not a single tear shed helplessly,
Not my grief or misery,
Only Christ's blood, shed for me,
Can get me into heaven.

Not one thing that I have done,
Not one race that I have run,
Not one reward that I have won,
Can get me into heaven.

Not by my works, lest I should boast,
None of the things that I love most,
Only The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Can get me into heaven.

None of the riches here below,
Not all the wonderful things I know,
Naught but Christ, who loves me so,
Can get me into heaven.

He loved me so, He died for me,
That He might set this captive free,
Both now, and for eternity,
To spend with Him in heaven.

Jesus, my Lord, You are the Way,
To lead me to that glorious day,
I'll thank You, more than words can say,
For getting me into heaven!
