There's a Whole Lotta Heaven Lyrics

by Iris Dement

Theres a Whole Lotta Heaven
Theres a whole lot of people talkin bout getting in the gloryland way
Walkin straight and narrow, trying to get to heaven someday
But Ive been saved by the love of the people livin right here
And theres a whole lotta heaven shinin in this river of tears
We dont got a prophet to tell us what our future holds
Weve only got each other and the love we carry in our souls
Though this worlds full of trouble and the path we walk is never clear
Theres still this whole lotta trouble shinin in this river of tears
(chorus) Theres a whole lotta heaven shinin in this river of tears
If you pull back the curtain, little diamonds will appear
You can take your streets of gold if you want m and your mansion so dear
But Ill take the whole lotta heaven shinin in this river of tears
This life that Im livin is like a ship that dont want to be steered
Sometimes I wake up in the mornin thinkin I could buckle
Beneath the weight of my own fears
Its some pain, some strain and some struggle but I persevere
Cause I got a whole lotta heaven shinin in this river of tears
