A Little Bit of Heaven by Clay Harrison~


A Little Bit of Heaven

~Clay Harrison~



There's a little bit of Heaven

In every child of God,

And every seed of kindness sown

is sown in fertile sod.

There's a little bit of Heaven

Within the Christian heart,

For once the Spirit dwells there,

it becomes a work of art.

There's a little bit of Heaven

in every answered prayer,

For once a prayer is answered

you know the Lord is there!

There's a little bit of Heaven

in every hymn we sign,

For when we sing His praises,

it's a many splendored thing.

There's a little bit of Heaven

in every passing day,

For the Father loves His children,

and keeps in touch that way.
