Wanting things heavenly
[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
Wanting life heavenly, feeling it hell,
stress and frustration – nothing goes well:
take short vacation, leave hurt behind,
new sights and feasting – brief pleasure find.
Jesus brings heaven to those who seek him,
and who will break with selfishness, sin;
soon there’ll be fullness, and even now,
heavenly foretaste here we can know.
Do others see it shown in the love
of those receiving grace from above?
wonderful life that Jesus can give
– may more be longing with him to live.
Tune: 54 54 D eg Thine own way, Lord
