Just suppose there was no Heaven
No stars up in the sky
Just suppose there was no after life
When they lay you down to die
Just suppose God didn’t love you
Just suppose he did not rise
Just suppose the empty feeling
When the world looked in your eyes.
But we know that there is a Heaven
And there’s proof that Jesus rose
And we know that he loves us
From our head down to our toes.
So raise your hands to Heaven
And call his name in praise
And there’ll be no more supposing
We’ll go to Heaven Judgement Day.
