Songs of Heaven


Elvish
 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm borrowing your idea here, Muzik. Hope you don't mind! Your thread made me think of one of my favorite songs written by Susan Tedeschi and Tommy Shannon of Double Trouble, "In the Garden." It's a beautiful song!

What are some of your favorite songs about Heaven?

In The Garden

When I wake up in the garden

Peaceful slumber wakes my eyes

The sun and moon are always present

There are no more crying people around

Love fills all up inside me

Filling my heart with wishful dreams

No more sorrow fills my canvas

Along this lonely sea

Ships fall off of the horizon

Bringing love, peace, and joy

No fire can ever harm us

Only music fills the air

Silver turquoise teardrops drip down

Into a window of your soul

Touching your emotions with sorrow

Of a thousand years of wisdom sold

Love fills all up inside me

Filling my heart with wishful dreams

No more sorrow fills my canvas

Along this lonely sea

Silver turquoise teardrops drip down

Into a window of your soul

Touching your emotions with sorrow

Of a thousand years of wisdom sold

Of a thousand years of wisdom sold

When I wake up in the garden

Peaceful slumber wakes my eyes

I dont think these are directly about heaven but...

Jimi Hendrix's Angel

Angel came down from heaven yesterday

She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me

And she told me a story yesterday,

About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea

And then she spread her wings high over me

She said she's gonna come back tomorrow

And I said, "Fly on my sweet angel,

Fly on through the sky,

Fly on my sweet angel,

Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side"

Sure enough this morning came unto me

Silver wings silhouetted against the child's sunrise

And my angel she said unto me,

"Today is the day for you to rise

Take my hand, you're gonna be my man,

You're gonna rise"

And then she took high over yonder

And I said, "Fly on my sweet angel,

Fly on through the sky,

Fly on my sweet angel,

Forever I will be by your side"

Also Tears in Heaven - Clapton

Hope you don't mind

My blessed elvish, how could I ever mind my eternal salvation?

My favourite song about Heaven is undoubtedly Joy to the World. (Not the ditty by Three Dog Night ::)

Joy to the World has the greatest melody of happiness I've ever heard. No version of it can match the one in my heart. This is one of the songs I sing and play at my church. I've made it somewhat contemporary but have held the great build up of it's intro and realize that this song should not be only thought of at Christmas time.

This song makes my heart cry with joy...

Joy to the World

Originally released by Donovan. #23 in 1967.......it seems that Sarah McLachlan also did this song but I haven't heard it though.

WEAR YOUR LOVE LIKE HEAVEN

Donovan

Colour in sky prussian blue

Scarlet fleece changes hue

Crimson ball sinks from view

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more

Fill me with song

Allah, kiss me once more

That I may, that I may

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love like)

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love)

La, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la

Colour sky havana lake

Colour sky rose carmethene

Alizarian crimson

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more

Fill me with song

Allah, kiss me once more

That I may, that I may

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love like)

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love)

La, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la

Can I believe what I see

All I have wished for will be

All our race proud and free

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love like)

Wear your love like heaven (wear your love)

Lord, kiss me once more

Fill me with song

Allah, kiss me once more

That I may, that I may

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love like)

Wear my love like heaven (wear my love)
