Yes Heaven is the Prize

This hymn is attributed to English Redemptorist priest Edmund Vaughan (1827-1908) - it is possible that he translated it from a similar work in some other language.

Although it hasn't been widely used in English-speaking countries, there are versions on YouTube in several native American languages.

Yes, heaven is the prize,
My soul shall strive to gain.
One glimpse of paradise,
Repays a life of pain.
Yes, heaven is the prize,
Yes, heaven is the prize.

Yes, heaven is the prize,
My soul, O think of this.
All earthly goods despise,
For such a crown of bliss.

Yes, heaven is the prize,
When sorrows press around.
Look up beyond the skies,
Where hope and strength are found.

Yes, heaven is the prize,
Oh it's not hard to gain.
He sure wins the prize,
For hope can conquer pain.

Yes, heaven is the prize,
Death opens wide the door.
And then the soul can fly,
To God forevermore.
