Easter Lamb in Heaven

It’s Easter time in heaven
Christ sits upon the throne
His faithful sheep are gathered 'round
This palace made of stone.

A rugged cross comes into view
Beyond the crystal sea
A sun-filled room, an empty tomb
A spectacle to see.

In heaven, God reminds us
The reason we are there
How Jesus hung upon the cross
Our burdens, He did bear.

In paradise, on Easter
As far as one can see
Are scenes of Easter long ago
And how this came to be.

There is no toil or trouble
The wages have been paid
The walls are built with diamonds
The streets are lined with jade.

The pearly gates of heaven
Such beauty to behold
The sky is clear as crystal
The walks are paved with gold.

A rainbow stretches overhead
Sweet cherubs fill the sky
Angels sing and church bells ring
They lift their voices high.
There is no need of moon and stars
Where everything is bright
For all who dwell within this land
Are bathed in Holy Light.
Like brilliant prisms in the sun
And beams of colored hue
Somewhere beyond the universe
The Lamb of God shines through.

It's Easter time in heaven
And everything is grand
The only thing that's earthly made
Are the nail scars in His hand.
