There's a whole lot of people talkin'bout gettin' in the gloryland way.
They're walkin' the straight and narrow cuz they're tryin' to get to heaven someday.
But I've been saved by the love of the people who are living right here.
There's a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears.
We don't got a prophet who will tell us what the future's gonna hold.
We've got each other and the love we carry in our souls.
well this world's full of trouble the path we walk is never quite clear.
Still there's a whole lot of heaven shinning in this river of tears.
Ther's a whole lot of heaven shinning in this river of tears.
If you pull back the curtain those diamonds appear.
You can have your streets of gold if you want em,
your mansions so dear.
I'll take a whole lot of heaven,
shining in this river of tears.
This life is like a ship it don't want to be steared.
Times a waiting in the mornin'thinkin' I can run away from fears.
It's a pain,
it's a strain,
It's a struggle but I persavere.
There's a whole lot of heaven shinin; in this river of tears.
