Down, down, down
Accumulating on the ground

With snowflakes swirling

Down, down, down
Heavens treasure, is here earthbound

A joyful praise sung
All around
With grateful heart receiving

And wise the soul be
Found, found, found
With heavens grace here to be crowned

With heavens view seen
All around
A true soul of believing

Christmas in Heaven

What’s Christmas in heaven
I can’t really say
But here are some thoughts
That I think they’d relay

Don’t worry ‘bout me
I’m more that OK
I’m surrounded in love
In every way

But there’s something I want
On this Christmas day
To share in my treasures
With you today

To think of the times
Each little endeavor
We spent, you and I
That love lasts forever

Yes, there is grieving
The hole is here, still
But know I am with you
With my love to fill

Yes, I am watching
Still cheering you through
For I know that our God
Has great plans for you

For my greatest treasure
That earth can’t contain
Is my love for you
That will always, remain

Can We See Heaven

In awe of such beauty
Above in the skies
Can we see heaven
In a sunrise?

From the mountain top
Of perspective anew
Can we see heaven
In this spectacular view?

Of intimate prayer

Right now, and right here?

A practice of loving
To see past the disguise
Can we see heaven
In every souls’ eyes?

Heaven Awaits

The truth of treasure great
In every living moment

The light within our soul
The blessing every moment
Of love that wraps us whole

So, let’s spend time in heaven
In God’s dwelling be
A taste of what awaits
For all eternity

Through His Eyes

When I first was born
With screaming and of cries
Grandpa said with joy
I see heaven in those eyes

Sitting on the shore
With prayer in the sunrise
His words nurtured my soul
I saw heaven in his eyes

When my trials came
Ahead was my demise
With unfailing love
He saw heaven in my eyes

When his time had come
A blessing of goodbyes
Through prayer we’ll always be
And see heaven through His eyes

Now, throughout my life
I look for the surprise
The many ways God shows
Heaven through our eyes

Window of Heaven

Through the open door
A gift of glory
The window of heaven
Is here before me

In bending of knees
Through soul of the seeing
A dance of divine
Falling into being

Revealing beyond
Divinities door
The treasures of heaven
Here, You outpour

Light overflowing
A shower of grace
One Word of knowing
Loves the embrace

Heavens Shown in Moments

Heavens shown in moments
In glimpses, flashes, rays
With no explanation
Leaves the soul, amazed

Moments of our lives
Grace was on display
Cast a new perspective
Response to only pray

Ones that touched the soul
A miracle of view
Message of the light
Your love came pouring through

Rejoice and recognize
Truth in the unreal
Cling to and to share
Parables to reveal

Let us become aware
Attune the soul to see
Coming to believe
To trust the mystery

4 Steps of Gods’ Will

How do I get to heaven
A thought we contemplate
Jesus has the answer
Pass through the narrow gate

Following God’s will
Four steps to employ
Find it and to do it
Keep it and enjoy!

Find it in the scriptures
Wise people and in prayer
In life’s circumstances
The voice of Spirit, hear

It’s not enough to hear it
For we must do it to
Love, and peace and mercy
To His Word to be true

We must be disciplined
In our faith of growing
To be disciplined
Jesus be our knowing

Staying of the course
Of good news to share
Hope and joy to spread
To bring heaven here

(based upon a sermon by Fr. Colin)

Let Heaven Flow

I’ve been apprehensive
Tentative, you know
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Fearfulness defines me
Time to let that go
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Lukewarm is my faith
Oh Spirit, let it grow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Stingy is my love
Through heart overflow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow

Little is my praise
Stoke the fires glow
Open up the gates
And let heaven flow
