Lyrics

Song of Heaven

Written By: James Boyce

(Verse)
As I Lay Fast Asleep An Angel Came To Me
He Took My Hand And Said Don’t Fear But Be At Peace

Come On And Journey Into Eternity
And Let Me Show You Things Your Eyes Have Never Seen

A Little Too Much To Bear, Was Truly Out Of This World
The Walls Were Made Of Rubies, Emeralds, Diamonds And Pearls
He Lead Me Throughout The Streets ,And What A Sight To Behold
I Could Not Believe My Eyes, The Streets Were Made Of Gold

As I Entered In Into Those Pearly Gates
Sights So Wonderful It Took My Breath Away

I Saw My Loved Ones In Christ Gone On Before
Many Great Saints Of Old I’ve Only Read Of

(Chorus)
Don’t You Wanna Go With Me, To A Place Of Joy And Peace
God Will Wipe Away Ours Tears, And He’ll Wash Away Our Fears
(There’s A Party In Heaven Waiting For You)

And The Angels Sing Holy Holy Holy, As They Fly Around His Throne
Join Along And Sing Glory, Honor And Power, As We Sing The Song Of Heaven

(Verse)
I Hear You Say How Can This Really Be
A Paradise With Such Beauty
A Reflection Of How Much He Loves Me
Free Your Mind And Learn Of Heaven’s Mystery

We Shall Behold His Face And Live As One Holy Race
One Nation Called By His Name His Majesty Proclaim
God’s Glory Provides Us Light And There Will Be No More Night
No Death, No Crying, No Pain Forever We Shall Reign

There’s A Number More Than What I Could Count
The Nations Far As The Eye Can See
They Were Gathered Around The Father’s Throne
They Bowed And Worshipped They Worshipped God Alone

(Chorus)
Heaven’s Gates Are Open Wide, Trust Believe And You’ll Abide
It’s The Home Prepared For You, There's A Mansion There For You
(There’s A Party In Heaven Waiting For You)

And The Angels Sing Holy Holy Holy, As They Fly Around His Throne
Join Along And Sing Glory, Honor And Power, As We Sing The Song Of Heaven

Dizzy

Written By: Simon "Mac" McNeil

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, (Repeat)

1ST Verse: Pendulum’s swinging
Satan is holerin’
Spreading his evil
In the name of tolerance
Jesus is coming
Demons are nervous
I think I saw one
In yesterday’s service

Harmony lead: I need your Spirit, That Holy Spirit, Precious Spirit
Almighty Spirit, Send me your Spirit, To balance my spirit
‘Cuz as the world keeps spinning around, spinning around, spinning around
It’s making me dizzy
2nd Verse: Bombs exploding
Revelation unfolding
The media’s molding
The views in the pews, ooh
It’s getting faster
These times of disaster
Call out to Jesus
Can’t be saved by your Pastor
(Go to Harmony lead)

Bridge: I need to sit down somewhere ya’ll
And catch my breath
I need to sit down somewhere ya’ll
And get my balance
I need to sit down somewhere ya’ll
And catch my breath
Cause as it’s spinning, it’s steady spinning
It’s got me spinning right out of my mind
(Repeat)

Vamp: I’m gonna sit in your Presence
To stop the spinning
Sit in your Presence
And moan with your Spirit
(Repeat)

And here it goes, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, (Repeat) ) (Go back to Vamp)
