Halfway up to Heaven

Halfway up to Heaven

I am climbing up a steep mountain
but there is a distance to the very top
I’m only halfway up to heaven but I adore this lovely backdrop

On the summit of that highest height is where I long to be
Even if it takes me forever I shall make it just you see

Away from civilisation, far from the bustling city crowd
When I reach the top of this mountain the beautiful blue sky above shall be my shroud

As I stand in solitude with not a soul in miles, I feel the presence of archangels looking down on me with smiles

I can almost touch them, Oh how radiant these heavenly beings are, each wearing a golden halo & twinkling like a star

Above the World’s Wonderland,
beyond the Promised land
A happiness of immortality with God’s calling as command
