Suppose there is no home on high

lyrics

HEAVEN ON THIS EARTH

Supposin' there's no
home on high, no
great beyond up in the sky
no hereafter after all

Well then I want
this world to be
a paradise, a place of peace
I want heaven on this earth

I want a band of angels
in my backyard
singing to the neighborhood
I want heavenly shores
out my front door
milk and honey at the corner store

My just rewards
might be just this
a chance to live,
a touch of bliss,
revelation in a song

I don't want war
I don't want greed
no more hunger or disease
I want heaven on this earth

I don't want war
I don't want greed
no more hunger or disease
I want heaven on this earth

Yes I want
this world to be
a paradise, a place of peace
I want heaven on this earth

I want a band of angels
in my backyard
singing to the neighborhood,
hallelujah glory be
this here's the promised land
