If Heaven Was For...


If heaven was for
the rich only
who can buy heaven?

If heaven was for
the poor only
will you like to be poor?

If heaven was for
the good in behaviours
who is that good to enter?

If heaven was for
eternity
who will long to be there?

If heaven was for...
Heaven for all
Heaven of all

Who have kept the faith!
Who have the white robe!
Heaven, we all long to be...

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
