09. Heartbeat Of Heaven

Heaven In The Real World
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Loving, joyful, peaceful, patient
Kind and good and full of faith
Self controlled and gentle
Oh the heart of heaven beats this way (repeat 2x)
I pulled up to the stop sign and I saw him standing there
The cardboard sign he held said he was hungry
I looked the other way and waited for the light to change
As if to say, I'd help but I'm in such a hurry
But these are the moments of truth
What would love have me do

Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want you to be my own
Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want my life to show
The kind of love that comes and goes
With the heartbeat of heaven

I know at times this heart of mine beats only for itself
Full of thoughts and dreams, plans and problems
But this heart beating here in me belongs to someone else
He bought it with His life to show His love
This is my prayer Lord today (Oh Lord I pray)
Let this heart beat Your way

Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want you to be my own
Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want my life to show
The kind of love that comes and goes
With the heartbeat of heaven

Loving, joyful, peaceful, patient
Kind and good and full of faith
Self controlled and gentle
Oh the heart of heaven beats this way (repeat 2x)

Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want you to be my own
Oh, heartbeat of heaven, I want my life to show
The kind of love that comes and goes
With the heartbeat of heaven
