A Rancher’s Reward
Since God is the Great Creator
Of all the beauties I’ve seen and heard
When He promises that eternity waits for me
Well…I’ll take Him at His word
I don’t need to live in no mansion
Alt: Verse: I don’t need to live in a mansion
Where the streets are lined with gold
Just a dusty old trail within heaven
A peaceful valley for my abode
God can give me this quiet corner
With plenty of work still to do
Creatures to care for and pastures to tend
Alt. Verse 1: (Name the type of livestock) to care for and pastures to tend
Alt. Verse 2: (Name the type of livestock) to work and pastures to tend
As my spirit, His strength renews
I’m made for hard work, it’s just who I am
And in eternity, I’ll choose it all again
God can give me some land of my own
And I’ll ranch that range for Him
I’ve no need for the wings of angels
My horse and pickup will do just fine
My dogs who’ve passed running beside me
The things God counted; that He reserved as mine
And I’ll build a beautiful homestead
Quite like the one I had to leave here
It will remind me of you and of this land that I love
The things I’ve held most treasured and dear
And my joy will be full amidst this beauty
Among the gentle creatures He’s made
Yet my joy will overflow when you’re with me again
We’ll share eternity beyond the grave
So when you arrive in heaven
Don’t look for me where angels fly
I won’t be in those pearly clouds
Or touching the azure sky
Look for me in emerald pastures
Among the creatures I’ve always know
Alt. Verse: Among the (name the type of livestock) I’ve always known
For a rancher’s reward is my destiny
A heavenly range that God has called my own
