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 orphan’s 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).

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.

    General CommentThis song is from Steven's new CD Beauty Will Rise, which is all about dealing with the grief his family went through after his daughter Maria died. I almost cry every time I hear it.

    General CommentOh my gosh i was listening to this song on youtube and reading through the lyrics at the same time, i nearly cried! The song is basically all about his daughter who has passed on and how he knew that this was his heaven.

    General CommentI love this song, even though I just heard it. My friend told me to get it on iTunes, so I did. I listened to the excerpt before buying it, but that was a few weeks ago and somehow I just listened to the whole thing. I have no idea how that happened. I Really do like it.
