05. That's Paradise

The Great Adventure
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Jimmy and Mary were quite a pair back in their younger days
They met and married in six weeks time and
That was sixty years ago in May
Four kids made a house a home and a love for Jesus kept them strong
Now very Sunday at eight A.M. Jimmy drives through town
Spends his days at Mary's side in a home for the old and broken down
A cane in his lap and a bible in his hand
He reads stories about the promised land
With tears in their eyes they dream about a place
Where everything changes in the light of Jesus face and

That's paradise...Hey, that's paradise...
When the life breaks through and the old's made new
And the joy will never die, that's paradise

In another corner of the world, met another man named Jim
He told me how twenty years of running from God
Had finally gotten the best of him
He said all hope was gone and he wanted to die
'cause what could God do with such a messed up guy
So we talked about Jesus, God's love and His plan
And when Jim walked away he was a brand new man and

That's paradise...Hey, that's paradise...
When the life breaks through and the old's made new
And the joy will never die, that's paradise

Well I know the best remains to be seen
In a place that's far beyond our wildest dreams
But until we see heaven we've got Jesus' word
That He'll never leave us and each prayer will be heard
(and that's...)

That's paradise...Hey, that's paradise...
When the life breaks through and the old's made new
And the joy will never die, that's paradise
