How’s Heaven

How’s Heaven?

I’ve never been

Since you’re there, I thought maybe you could tell me?

God said he’s making everything like new

He created this special place for special people like you

The Kingdom of Heaven

You didn’t get to pack your things or say goodbye to all of us like when you went off to college

So how’s Heaven?

I know your faith in Jesus gives you eternal life

You are magnificent angel with the glory of God

Just like Abraham, you might have to walk alone and leave everything behind

God has given you peace with your new home in Heaven

So how’s Heaven?

I called on the Lord all night and I wouldn’t let go

I feel like I prayed every prayer

I have to praise my way out of this one

Life is a fight and it doesn’t fight fair

Heaven is where we all should want to go there right?

So how’s Heaven?

What does it feel like to have wings now?

God has now received you to himself

You are an angel in the sky

Heaven seems like the place to go

There’s no pain or death in heaven

I want to go

(Revelation 21:2)

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away”

So how’s Heaven??

I want to go….
