Words of Worship – Heaven by Joy Lenton

Heaven
©JoyLenton2013
A far off country
as close as our next breath
seated now in heavenly places
known completely after death.
Glimpsed in a loved one’s eyes
and the cries of a newborn’s birth
way beyond moon, stars or skies
close and familiar as earth.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
we will live and belong there
it takes grace and faith to receive
the Truth and Hope we will share.
All the joys and the glory
of a life surrendered to God
we are already part of the story
of the path which Jesus trod.
No matter what our ponderings
no matter where we now roam
despite all future wanderings
heaven is our heart’s true Home
