Heaven’s Near


This song is how I feel whenever I’m with my children.They are more than wonderful. Having a boy made me realize how painful it must have been for God to sacrifice his only son, Jesus, so that we might have salvation. I cannot imagine giving up my only son.

Thank you, God, for my children.

I love you forever, Chapin.
-Daddy

Heaven's Near Lyrics

It seemed like such a long day
As I laid my little boy down
As I caught the moonlight
It showed his tiny frown

His face still all dirty
As my fingers combed his hair
For all that I had done wrong
He knew that I was there

CHORUS:
We wrestled and we made
believe
I was him and he was me
I saw his tears and heard his prayers
It brought me to my knees
Well, I must be a hero when he looks at me that way
When he says, “I love you, Daddy”
Heaven’s not ...so far away

Quietly, I said good night
To him and all his toys
I hid the trail that we had left
Now boys will be boys

As my head hit the pillow
I thought about the One
Who gave to me that little boy
By giving up His Son

CHORUS:
We wrestled and we made believe
I was him and he was me
I saw his tears and heard his prayers
It brought me to my knees
Well, I must be a hero when he looks at me that way
When he says, “I love you, Daddy”
Heaven’s not ... so far away

BRIDGE:
Life might get real hard
But, boy, don’t ever run
Always remember
God gave to us His Son

One by one He let them
Drive the nails right through his skin
He did it for His Daddy
Just to wipe away our sins

I cannot imagine
How the Father felt that day
When His boy cried out to Him
And He had to turn away

CHORUS:
We wrestled and we made believe
I was him and he was me
I saw his tears and heard his prayers
It brought me to my knees
Well, I must be a hero when he looks at me that way
When he says, “I love you, Daddy”
Heaven’s not ... so far away
