Heaven in the Real World

I saw it again today in the face of a little child
Looking through eyes of fear and uncertainty
It echoed in a cry for freedom
Across the street and across the miles
Cries from the heart to find the missing part

Where is the hope, where is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for Heaven in the real world

To stand in the pouring rain and believe the sun will shine again
To know that the grave is not the end
To feel the embrace of grace
And cross the line where real life begins
And know in your heart
You’ve found the missing part

There is a hope, there is a peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for Heaven in the real world

It happened one night with a
tiny baby’s birth
God heard creation crying
And He sent Heaven to earth

He is the hope, He is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for Heaven in the real world

He is the hope, He is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for Heaven in the real world

Heaven has come to the real world
Heaven has come, come to the real world
Jesus is Heaven in the real world
