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

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
