Heaven Here and Now

Many of
God’s eternal blessings are
available to you
right now!

Printed Music

I want to live in the Holy of Holies.
I want to live, my Lord, in You.
I want to walk in the light of Your presence.
I want to walk in simple truth.

I can wait for Your heavenly blessings.
I can trust Your when and how.
But if You, my Lord, are heaven,
I want heaven here and now.
I want heaven here and now.

Life’s beginning and its ending,
Its fountain and its crystal sea.
My Lord, You’re all the life of heaven.
Be life right now for me.

I can wait for Your heavenly blessings.
I can trust Your when and how.
But if You, my Lord, are heaven,
I want heaven here and now.
I want heaven here and now.

I don’t want to waste a lifetime
Trying just to make it through,
Then to find the best of heaven
Was available in You.

I can wait for Your heavenly blessings.
I can trust Your when and how.
But if You, my Lord, are heaven,
I want heaven here and now.
I want heaven here and now.

Every day, all day long, my Lord,
My being lifts up Your praise.

His ways are indeed
marvelous and

Printed Music

Our Almighty God will do His work
Through us, through us.
Our Father delights to bless the world
Through us, through us.
Through all who hear and obey His call,
The child, the leader, the great and small,
He will help and heal,
Expressing His love through us.

For all who obey, our Father works
His will, His will.
Through joy and through pain He kindly weaves
His will, His will.
The sweet surprise and the long delay,
The weird, the wild, and the everyday,
God will use them all
To lovingly work His will.

O Father of love, we give ourselves
To You, to You.
Completely, O God, we live our lives
To You, to You.
So give the joy that You long to share,
Our deepest hunger, our highest prayer,
That forevermore
We draw every breath in You.

celebrating the
greatness and
goodness of
our magnificent God.

O Your goodness! O Your greatness,
Light of every soul and star!
Dazzled by Your endless wonders,
None can fathom all You are.
Every passing generation
Sings what all Your children know.
Hymns of all Your mighty mercies
Bubble up and overflow.

Yahweh, God of all compassion,
Always grace in all You do,
Patient and forever faithful,
Mercy ever moment new!
O Your everlasting Kingdom,
Here among us now begun!
Finish all Your love has started
With the gift of Christ Your Son.

All Your goodness, all Your greatness
Reaches down to those who fall.
Tender, constant, rich provision
Flows from You, the All-in-all.
All You do is right and loving.
When we cry, You always hear,
Ever guarding, ever giving,
Ever God and ever here!

Here is an exuberant celebration of
God as Savior.

I love You, Lord, my strength, my rock,
My refuge, my salvation!
Almighty God, You deserve all our praise!
Creation quakes and mountains move,
For You, the Lord, are with us.
Almighty God, You deserve all our praise!

Alone and overwhelmed,
Surrounded and afraid,
You bowed and came to meet my need.
You answered when I prayed!

Enabled, Lord, by You,
What challenge should I dread?
Empowered by Your holy breath,
I boldly move ahead.

Fearful heart,
Boldly start
Trusting and obeying.

Splendor unfading, forever the same.
