A Special Day in Heaven...
Special Day in Heaven
Once upon a special day in Heaven up above,
The tiniest souls sat at God's feet, surrounded by
The time was coming, very soon, God said, do not be
Your family awaits your arrival, now let us get prepared.
And so God looked upon these souls, in mute
He knew the life each one would live, He weighed each
The souls chatted amongst themselves, and wondered
who they'd be. They knew the day grew closer; soon,
they'd meet their family.
How would you like to change the world? God asked
each soul in fun. The chance to change a soul, a heart,
is held by only one.
I'm going to make the world laugh, one soul
said with a smile,
for laughter heals a broken heart, and helps us through
each trial. Then take with you the brightest smile,
and share your laughter well. The soul thanked God
immensely, and down to earth he fell.
And I'll remind the world to sing, a sweet little

stop and pray.
The tiniest soul raised his head up, to touch God's
firm, strong hand. Father, I am ready for, the life

they had not seen his face,
they were praying for his safe arrival, they were
asking for mercy and grace.

he would be,
and whispered as he watched him go...You'll teach
