God of Heaven


Lyrics

Verse 1

God of heaven guide me onward
Through these days
Full of toil and pain
How can sickness or these fires
Will win the day?

Chorus 1

For I am bound to dwell in heaven
Where the God of love resides
And with saints through endless ages
Ever praise our savior Christ

Verse 2

Neither golden streets nor treasures
Tug my heart like the love of Christ
Who prepares for me a mansion
And new life

Chorus 2

But what’s a building if its empty?
What is heaven if you’re not there?
What will satisfy my longings?
Who will answer every prayer?

Bridge

God of heaven faithful and true
Teach my soul to dwell with You

Verse 3

God of heaven ruling justly
From Your throne
You make all things new
Every promise every comfort
Coming true


Chorus 3

And with Your hand You part the waters
Flowing forth from earthbound eyes
turning tears of grief to gladness
As I see my brother Christ

Verse 4

Though my soul longs to be with You
I will stay to proclaim the cross
By your Spirit ever reaching
To the lost

Chorus 4

So that they may dwell in heaven
Where the God of love resides
And with saints through endless ages
Ever praise our savior Christ
