Heaven Is The Face

Heaven is the face of a little girl
With dark brown eyes
That disappear when she smiles
Heaven is the place
Where she calls my name
Says, “Daddy please come play with me for awhile”

Chorus:

God, I know, it's all of this and so much more, But God, You know, that this is what I'm aching for God, you know, I just can't see beyond the door So right now...

Heaven is the sound of her breathing deep, Lying on my chest, falling fast asleep while I sing And Heaven is the weight of her in my arms, Being there to keep her safe from harm while she dreams

And God, I know, it's all of this and so much more, But God, You know, that this is what I'm longing for God, you know, I just can't see beyond the door

Bridge:

But in my mind's eye I can see a place
Where Your glory fills every empty space All the cancer is gone, Every mouth is fed, And there's no one left in the orphans' bed Every lonely heart finds their one true love, And there's no more goodbye, And no more not enough, And there's no more enemy...no more...

And heaven is a sweet, maple syrup kiss And a thousand other little things I miss with her gone Heaven is the place where she takes my hand And leads me to You, And we both run into Your arms

Oh God, I know, it's so much more than I can dream It's far beyond anything I can conceive So God, You know, I'm trusting You until I see Heaven in the face of my little girl, Heaven in the face of my little girl
