How Beautiful Heaven Must Be
How beautiful Heaven must be
If it's more than the beauty I see.
I see no streets of gold or gates of pearl
But God, you made such a beautiful world.
As I look at the water all rippling and
Every tree made by your own hand
I wonder how many millions of leaves you
When you were making this beautiful land.
You went one step farther, you made Adam and
To replenish this wonderful world
You put a twinkle in the eye of every little
And a smile on every boy and girl.
As time went on and I was born
You knew what would be my desire
You placed me where I could see your face
And in my heart you kindled a fire
You gave me a love for your beautiful
A talent to sing and to write
There's no place I'd rather be
Than here, in your presence tonight.
