about

"Glimpses of Heaven" is a unique, thought-provoking and uplifting collection of anecdotes, reflections, literary quotations and verse, revealing the ­wonders that await us in the next life. Drawing from a multitude of sources and authors, "Glimpses of Heaven" convincingly affirms that the closing of this life is but "a passage out of a prison into a ­palace," where our deepest longings and desires will be fulfilled!

"Can you visualize a world with: no more death, no more pain, no more hunger, no more fear, no more sorrow, no more ­crying nor sickness, a world where everything is a joy and a pleasure? - A society where everybody works together in harmony, ­cooperation and love? That's Heaven!"

Track Name: Introduction (If We Could See Beyond Today) [feat. Richard Hanson]
"IF WE COULD SEE BEYOND TODAY"

If we could see beyond today as God can see,
If all the clouds should roll away,
The shadows flee;
O'er present griefs we would not fret,
Each sorrow we would soon forget,
For many joys are waiting yet
For you and me.

If we could know beyond today as God doth know,
Why dearest treasures pass away,
And tears must flow.
We'd know that darkness leads to light,
And dreary days will soon grow bright;
Some day life's wrongs will be made right,
Faith tells us so.

If we could see, if we could know, we often say,
But God in love a veil doth throw
Across our way;
We cannot see what lies before,
And so we cling to Him the more,
He leads us till this life is o'er;
Trust and obey.

He leads us till this life is o'er;
Trust and obey.
Track Name: Homesick for Heaven (You Can Face Tomorrow) [feat. Mercy Myers]
"YOU CAN FACE TOMORROW"

Losing someone close to you can leave your heart in pieces,
Through empty days & endless lonely nights.
The loss of one so dear, the goodbye of one you love,
A chapter closed in the story of your life.
But ends can be new beginnings, not just a reason to give up hope
Each night that passes brings another morn.
And though the loss brings pain, our hearts can love again,
And through our tears new life & hopes are born.

CHORUS:
You can face tomorrow & let go of your sorrow,
And thank God for the life you have to live.
Wipe the tears from your eyes & soon you'll realize
That many need the love you can give.

Now is the time to start your life all over
Don't let yesterday hold you down.
If you kiss the past goodbye, you can face today with all your heart,
Happy with the new life you have found.
Track Name: Life After Life (Butterfly)
"BUTTERFLY"

Once the night looked kindly,
Once the sun did shine
On you, my gentle treasure,
That once on earth were mine.
Once you smiled to see me,
And once I held you near;
But now my eyes are misty
My treasure's far from here.

Chorus 1
But I'm happy because you're happy,
Because you're in Heaven, safe at last.
Trials are past, pain is over,
That cocoon's no more your home,
For you, our precious Butterfly,
Have flown.

Thank God the race is over,
Thank God the fight is done.
Together with our Savior
We fought the war and won!
With victory now behind us,
I long to soon abide
In Heaven where you're waiting,
Over on the Other Side.

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Bridge
He's happy there, much stronger now
And learning things so quickly.
He's so alive! He's still our son.
They’ll keep him 'til we come.

Once I held my treasure
Now you're stored away;
Once I dreamed of Heaven:
It's real to me today!
And though I deeply miss you,
How faint my grief shall seem
When I come to join you
Beyond the rainbow's gleam.

Chorus 2
Yes, I'm happy because you're happy,
Because you're in Heaven, safe at last.
Peace and joy, love and laughter
All abound in that new Home,
Where you, our precious Butterfly, have flown…
Peace and joy, love and laughter
All abound in that new Home,
Where you, our precious Butterfly, have flown…
Track Name: Comfort and Reunion with Loved Ones (We Shall Meet Again) [feat. Francesco Begley] with Loved Ones
"WE SHALL MEET AGAIN"

[Spoken:]
We knew when we first met that we wouldn't have long together,
And that it would hurt to fall in love and then have to be apart.
Well, it's comforting to know that you won't have to be alone
And that there is Someone you can open your heart to when I'm gone.
And the wonderful thing about it is He'll never leave you,
His Love is forever, because He's the Maker of Love, and one day
He'll make it possible for us to be together again.
So, my love, this isn't "good bye", only "until then"...

He'll care when you are down,
When I am not around,
He'll be there to hold you.
His love is more than any man's,
He'll take you by the hand,
He'll never fail you.
If His Love you'll receive,
We will meet again,
This is not the end.

Chorus:
For they that love God
Shall never meet for the last time.
Oh, they that love God
Shall one day meet again.
They that love God,
Shall never meet for the last time.
This life isn't the end,
We shall meet again.

Yes, now it's time to part,
Though painful to our hearts,
It's something that we have to do.
It will hurt for awhile,
But one day we will smile,
We'll see from another point of view.
Though I now must go
And tears may flow, this isn't the end.

[Repeat chorus]
Track Name: Our Heavenly Bodies (I'll Meet You Over There)
"I'LL MEET YOU OVER THERE"

They all move so slowly and with such peace,
Like in a slow motion dance, they flow with ease.
In harmony with the music of the stars,
They're so happy where they are.
They float as they walk and glide around,
Their feet seem to hardly touch the ground,
All talking and laughing happily,
Oh, what a lovely place to be!

Chorus:
As Earth recedes, Heaven opens
To a World waiting above.
We let go time, pain and sorrow,
For this glorious Kingdom of Love.
In the morning at dawn,
I'll meet you over There.

They're much better off than you and I,
Released from the troubles of this life,
Free from their hunger and their thirst,
All disease and every curse.
Dressed now in shimmering gowns of light,
Looking much like they did in prime of life,
Transporting to Earth or anywhere -
They just think it and they're there!

[Repeat chorus]

They watch from their vantage point Up There,
And when allowed they help us here,
And that day when our job on Earth is done,
They'll be there to take us home.
On that wonderful day we will transform,
Feeling so loving and so warm.
We'll rise up to meet them in the sky,
At the twinkling of an eye.
Track Name: Conclusion (Earth Has No Sorrow Heaven Cannot Heal) [feat. Mercy Myers]
"EARTH HAS NO SORROW HEAVEN CANNOT HEAL"

It seems my dreams are all come to an end,
Shattered, scattered, I need more than a friend.
You know why I cry, the one I love is gone.
Please help me, give me the strength to carry on.

Chorus:
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
My World's turned inside out, hear me as I call out.
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
There's love in all You do,
I know somehow You'll see me through.

Who will come fill the emptiness I feel?
I long for someone whose concern is real.
You can understand and wipe my tears away.
Please help me, hold me, hear me as I pray.

[Repeat chorus]

I know You know exactly what it's like.
You've been here, lived here and felt the pains of life.
You're close by my side to comfort me once more.
I want You and need You more than I have before.

Chorus:
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
My World's turned inside out, hear me as I call out.
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
There's love in all you do,
I know somehow You'll see me through.

[There’s so much love in all you do]
I know you’ll see me through
[There’s so much love in all you do]
I know, I know it’s true
[There’s so much love in all you do]
And I know you’ll see me through
[There’s so much love in you]
And I know somehow you’ll see me through, see me through
