There’s more to life than what our eyes can see;
And there’s more to God than what our dreams could ever dream.
One day you could wake up and be walking streets of gold
And up ahead you’ll see a crystal sea around God’s royal throne.
Now I’m not talking about Disneyland or a place called “make believe.”
I’m talking about God’s house…it’s way bigger than you ever dreamed!.
It’s 1500 miles square and it’s coming down from the sky,
And even though it It is so big, you could miss it when you die.
Now I don’t claim to have been there or to have walked the streets of gold.
But the One who tells the story…He’s the builder, I am told.
The walls are made of jasper…it’s beyond your wildest dream.
This was not some ordinary house…this is a palace for the King.
John saw the vision in Revelation…he could hardly believe his eyes;
It was dazzling white…so beautiful…looking like a bride.
When you enter into this house, there is no need for light.
No sun or moon will shine in it…God’s glory is so bright!
This is more like a city…it has three gates on each side.
And every gate had one pearl…so big it could open wide.
But there was one more thing that John did see; and this one thing really bothered me.
There were lots of loved ones that did not make it there,
But God himself was wiping away everybody’s tears.
Heaven’s not a fairy tale…every word of God is true.
But when your loved ones get to Heaven, will God be wiping their tears for you?
