A child may someday ask you sir, How far from here is Heaven?

Think fast what will your
answer be for someone who’s six or seven

Will you say more than a
billion miles somewhere in outer space?

The answer is not easy for we have not seen that place

 

Well I don’t have the answer but let him stand this test

Just take his little hand in yours and place it on his chest

For him to ask this question there is a searching deep inside

And you should feel so
honored that in you he will confide

 

I have not been to heaven nor seen those streets of gold

But my precious Lord has promised that those sights I will behold

So I think that I would tell him in this kind and
simple way

Heaven my little Christian friend is just one
heartbeat away
