The Hills of Heaven
I looked outside this afternoon
To see the glorious day,
I saw the clouds like heaven’s hills
Spread out across the way.
They made it seem like heaven’s coast
Was just a step beyond,
Like one more step could take me to
The home of which I’m fond.
It seemed so near, and then I thought
How near it really is –
One breath away beyond these hills
To heaven’s endless bliss.
So, when I see the clouds above
I think of heaven’s door
One step beyond the skyline here
On heaven’s perfect shore
Where Jesus waits to welcome me
To heaven’s perfect day,
Where no more clouds will hide His face,
Where I may always stay.
