Tonight for just a little while
Heaven withdrew its sash
And laid across the folding sky
A tiny little splash
Of glories withheld from our eyes
Sealed in a land of paradise

He parted that far curtain
And spilled across the west
The wonder of a Kingdom
Reserved for heaven’s rest
As we beheld with trusting eyes
A tiny glimpse of paradise

His Word is not a hoax or myth
He said He would return
And until then we hope and wait
And silently we yearn
As teardrops fill our pleading eyes
We long for God and paradise

Tonight for just a little while
He rendered to the earth
A glimpse of hope beyond this mile
Of sweat and tears and dirt
Just beyond our earth-dimmed eyes
Gleams a land of paradise


Spectacular, awesome, breath-taking…
Words fell flat beneath such beauty!

More pictures in the side-bar…

I was so glad I decided to run miles instead of stairs tonight!!!

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Ps. 19:1
